Mock Presidential Election

Thu., Oct. 27, 1932

On October 27, 1932, The Dickinsonian published the results of a poll it had conducted among the students concerning their choice for the U.S. presidency.  Of 218 votes cast, 152 were for Hoover, 38 were for Roosevelt, and 27 were for Thomas, the socialist candidate.  The Dickinsonian felt obliged to explain Hoover's win as the result of either complacency on the side of his opponents or the staunch Republicanism of Pennsylvanians.
