Description
  • Abstract

    This special topic poll, fielded June 9-13, 1999, sought respondents' views on the upcoming 2000 presidential election. Those queried were asked for whom they would vote given the choice between Democratic candidate Vice President Al Gore and Republican candidate Texas Governor George W. Bush, and how strongly they felt about their current choice. Respondents were also asked whether they believed that Gore understood the problems of people like them, was boring, or was a strong leader. An additional question concerned the Democratic primary or caucus for president in 2000. Given a choice between Gore and former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley, respondents were asked for their vote choice. Background information on respondents includes age, race, sex, political party, education, marital status, employment status, age of members of household, and income.
