Tracking poll: Gore opens modest lead over Bush

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Al Gore has established a modest lead over presidential rival Texas Gov. George W. Bush, according to the daily CNN/USA Today/Gallup tracking poll. Minor party challengers Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan continue to post support in the single-digits.

 

Immediately following the Democratic convention, Gore pulled even with Bush, and the race remained neck-and-neck through the first few days of the tracking poll, which began on Labor Day. Since then, Gore has opened up a narrow lead, and beginning last weekend his support has stayed in the high 40's, while Bush's has remained in the low 40's.

Interviews with 685 likely voters, conducted September 10-12, confirm that Democrat presidential nominee Gore -- for the first time -- has taken an 8 point lead over Republican rival Bush. Gore claimed 49 percent of the survey's likely voters, while Bush had the support of 41 percent. The poll has a sampling error of +/-4% percent.

CNN will be releasing the results on its tracking polls every day until the November 7 elections. The polls monitor public opinion of the presidential race over intervals of two to three days.
