ABSTRACT
The article reports on the political prospects of champion Democratic vote-getter and Senator Estes Kefauver in the Presidential election of the United States. Despite having helped Democrats in many occasions, yet Kefauver is unloved and unsung by the top leaders of his party. These utterly selfish leaders are joined in many of the largest centers by two groups of liberals who are sincerely reluctant to accept Kefauver for reasons of principle. One group believes that Senator Kefauver would not have the kind of whole-hearted support from minority groups which is thought necessary for a national Democratic victory.
