number that has ever expressed a
preference In a pre-e ectlon canvass.
Th * poll has been supplemented by
the observations end the conclusions
of experienced political reporters,
who have gone Into every county of
every debatable State. and talked
with men In every walk of life.
"In the division of the electoral
votes, as a result of the canvass, the
Herald has given to Governor Wilson
13? from the eleven Southern States,
whn h are conceded to Governor Wil?
son. They sre Alabama. Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Loulriani. Mississ?
ippi. North Carolina. South Carolina,
Tenneasee, Texas and Virginia. Add?

I't tiiisylvanlii the conditions Vary in
the different section* of tl ? Stute.
The reports show they art even more
likely to go for Governor Wilson than
for Mr. Uoosevelt, but they have
been placed in the doubtful column.
The one thin* which stands out in
all the i? purls, and which may bo the
determining factor of the election, is
thi.t the Democratic party is practi?
cally united while the Republican
pa*ty is divided."
The Evening Tost today says:
"The Presidential campaign of 1118,
in many respects one of the most ex?
traordinary in American history, is
tin shed and awaits now the verdict
of the ballot box. Judging by all the
ordinary tests of political mathe?
matics and political experience, Wood
row Wilson, of New Jersey, and Thos.
R. Marshall, of Indiana, each the
Governor of his State and nominees
of the Democratic party for Presi?
dent and Vlco President, respectively,
wl 1 be elected by an overwhelming
pit rallty, possibly an actual majority,
of tho popular vote and by an even
mere impressive majority of the elec?
toral votes of tho StateR. Every or
#11 nary probability indicates that the
J ><mocratlc ticket will receive not less
than 387 out of the T>31 electoral votes
? far in excess of the Sffl required for
an actual majority."
