Summary note
This special topic poll, fielded July 26, 2000, queried respondents just prior to the July 31-August 4 Republican National Committee (RNC) Convention in Philadelphia, PA. 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). Respondents were also asked whether they approved of Bush's selection of former Secretary of Defense and Wyoming congressman Dick Cheney as his vice-presidential running mate. Additional questions sought respondents' views on Cheney's congressional voting record, including his vote against funding for Head Start and the Older Americans Act, and his current position as the head of a large oil company. A final question addressed the influence of former President George Bush in his son's presidential campaign. Background information on respondents includes age, gender, political party, political orientation, voter registration and participation history, education, race, and household income.... Cf.:
