ABSTRACT
The article discusses the social and political developments taking place in the United States. It speculates that the interpretation of the 1952 convention will long be debated. Pundits of conservative papers comment that the Democrats have become middle-class and conservative, and are defending their new vested interests. The article also discusses that the Democrats have lost far more in the North than what they have gained in the South, due to the choices made in nominating candidates for the U.S. Senate.
