ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the prevailing political condition in the U.S. before the 1952 Presidential election. Eisenhower has the forcible argument that maybe he can win. In its preferential primary, Pennsylvania voted 863,000 for Eisenhower and only 178,000 for Senator Robert A. Taft. Pennsylvania Governor John Fine has a nice bloc of puppet-delegates in his wallet and is looking around for a bidder. Politician John Foster Dulles is going between Taft and Eisenhower trying to promote the idea that there really is not much difference between them on foreign policy anyway.
