This poll, fielded February 1, 2000, is part of a continuing series of monthly surveys that solicit public opinion on the presidency and on a range of other political and social issues. Respondents were asked whether they intended to vote in the November 7, 2000, presidential election and for whom they would vote if the election were held that day, given a choice between Democratic candidates Vice President Al Gore and former New Jersey senator Bill Bradley, Republican candidates Texas governor George W. Bush and Arizona senator John McCain, and the Reform Party candidate, conservative commentator Pat Buchanan. Views were sought on which of the candidates could be described as understanding the problems of people such as the respondent, a strong leader, possessing the experience to be president, capable of bringing needed change to Washington, DC, inspiring, most knowledgeable on world affairs, making the best commander-in-chief, and which candidate worried them. Respondents were asked for whom they would vote in a Republican primary or caucus given a choice between Bush, McCain, radio talk show host Alan Keyes, and publisher Steve Forbes, and for whom they would vote in a Democratic primary or caucus given a choice between Gore and Bradley. A final question sought respondents' views on which of the following issues was most important in deciding for whom to vote in a presidential primary: world affairs, campaign finance reform, abortion, Social Security/Medicare, moral values, taxes, or education. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political orientation, voter registration status, education, Hispanic origin, labor union membership, military status, and household income.
