This poll, conducted November 27-28, 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 both presidential candidates, Vice President Al Gore and Texas Governor George W. Bush, their running mates, the Democratic Party vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman and the Republican Party vice presidential candidate Dick Cheney, and the respective parties. Those polled were asked whether Bush and Gore would be able to lead the country effectively and whether they would bring together or divide different groups of Americans. The survey queried respondents on the way the Bush and Gore campaigns were handling the uncertain outcome of the election, the legitimacy of the election, the electoral college, the accuracy of Florida's vote count, and the effects of the presidential election controversy. Respondents were asked whom voters in Florida intended to vote for, whether one of the candidates should concede, and when the outcome would finally be resolved. Additional questions focused on the United States Supreme Court and its involvement in the election, Cheney's health condition, partisanship in Congress, and the situation in the national economy. Respondents also indicated whether Bush was right in starting to form his administration before the court cases were resolved. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, education, race/ethnic identity, voter registration, political party affiliation, political orientation, marital status, children in the household, and household income.
