  • Abstract

    This special topic poll, fielded August 4, 2000, queried respondents following the July 31-August 4 Republican National Committee (RNC) Convention in Philadelphia, PA. Respondents were asked how much attention they had paid to the 2000 presidential race and whether they intended to vote in the November election. Those queried were asked for whom they would vote, given a choice among candidates Vice President Al Gore (Democratic Party), Texas governor George W. Bush (Republican Party), conservative commentator Pat Buchanan (Reform Party), and political activist Ralph Nader (Green Party). Their views were sought on whether the nation needed a president who could set it in a new direction or whether the nation needed to keep moving in the direction President Bill Clinton had been taking it. Respondents were asked whether they shared Bush's views on most issues, whether they shared the political views of the Republican Party, whether Bush was a different kind of Republican, and which political party was more tolerant of different points of view. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, education, and race.
