Interview with Carl Stokes
QUESTION 14
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Did you lose hope? I mean, it seemed, the polls were beginning to close in and really towards the election it looked like Taft might actually be taking a little bit of a lead. Did you ever lose hope? Did you ever think that you were not going to win?

CARL STOKES:

I never had any question but that we would win. Now, as a professional politician, I'm always prepared to lose because I have both won and lost, uh, races, but everything that I knew about the way in which that campaign was going and the information we were getting from our polling told me that we'd win, narrow though it might be, we would win.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Okay. Stop the camera.
