Description
  • Abstract

    This poll, conducted November 19, 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 presidential election. Respondents were asked whether they participated in the last presidential election on November 7, 2000, and whom they voted for. They also gave their opinions of President Bill Clinton and both presidential candidates, Vice President Al Gore and Texas Governor George W. Bush. The survey queried respondents on the accuracy of Florida's vote count, the effects of the presidential election controversy, uniform poll closing time on election night, the way the Bush and Gore campaigns were handling the uncertain outcome of the election, and the way Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris was handling the vote count in Florida. Those polled were asked whom voters in Florida intended to vote for, whether Palm Beach County should hold a re-vote, whether results of hand counts should be included in the official vote count, and when the outcome would finally be resolved. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, education, race/ethnic identity, voter registration, political party affiliation, political orientation, marital status, and household income.
