  • Abstract

    This poll, conducted October 10, 2000, is part of a continuing series of surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. The study was conducted to assess respondents' interest in and opinions about the 2000 election campaign for United States president. Respondents were asked for their opinions of Republican candidate and Texas governor George W. Bush and Democratic candidate and Vice President Al Gore, prior to the second of three presidential debates held October 11, 2001. Those polled answered a set of questions comparing Bush and Gore as candidates in terms of their experience, honesty, leadership qualities, ability to be an effective president, and preparation for the job, as well as which candidate had attacked the other unfairly during the campaign. Respondents were asked whether they watched and/or listened to the October 3rd debate, who they thought won the debate, and whether they planned to watch the debate to be held on October 11. Respondents were also asked whom they intended to vote for in the upcoming presidential election: Gore (Democratic Party candidate), Bush (Republican Party candidate), Pat Buchanan (Reform Party candidate), or Ralph Nader (Green Party candidate). Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, religion, marital status, education, Hispanic descent, race, years in community, children in household, and household income.
