This special topic poll, fielded August 18, 2000, queried respondents following the August 14-17 Democratic National Committee (DNC) Convention in Los Angeles, CA. 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 which candidate they trusted to better handle the national economy, protect the Social Security system, improve education and the schools, help the middle class, improve the health care system, and hold taxes down. Additional topics covered whether Gore and Bush were strong leaders, had appealing personalities, understood the problems of the American people, and possessed sufficient experience to be president, 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, religion, and race.
