The 1948 election[edit]

From what I read the problem was - the pollsters did a phone poll, and did not account for 'private phone owners' being only a subsection of the population that was relatively better off #and# more likely to support Dewey (the general population having a preference for Truman). What is the truth in this? 86.191.125.179 (talk) 14:18, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

My god[edit]

the content of this speech would be far left of today's democrats. Protecting the gains of labor? Increasing social security? Fighting against the forces of racism and religious discrimination? Homes for all people? Now I get that FDR had just started the democrats' slow plodding turn towards being the more progressive party, but Dewey is left of pretty much every single elected politician today. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 20:17, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
