New Republic;9/29/52, Vol. 127 Issue 13, p3
The article presents information on practical politics in the U.S. There is evidence that the public would really like a change of party in Washington after 20 years and in some respects this might be a good thing. There are supposed to be 15 million independents and more Democrats than Republicans in the electorate. Polls of public opinion every four years put Republicans way out ahead at first, then the big, disappointed American audience turns away. Public has really made up its mind it wants a change.
