THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: So much for the scientific view.
CNN's Greg Lefevre has been gathering opinions on the streets of San Francisco.
Let's hear about those opinions, Greg.
GREG LEFEVRE, CNN SAN FRANCISCO BUREAU CHIEF: Well, Lou, the opinions are, indeed, quite strong. I'm here with some folks.
Brian (ph), you do executive search; you've been watching the media coverage of this thing -- what's your view on how the media's doing?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, I think they're doing great, I think they love it. I think, you know, most of the media is liberal, so I think they're all excited about it. They were tracking the truck, the Ryder truck with the ballots like it was O.J. heading out of Florida.
LEFEVRE: Do you sense a bias?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes, I think so.
LEFEVRE: And that is?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think, well, like I said -- most of the media, I think, is liberal and it's kind of, you know, it's kind of tilted that way, and seems to be what's going on.
LEFEVRE: OK; Jan (ph), you're an actress. Tell me, what are the people in your community thinking about what's going on here.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Well, I don't know about too many of the people in this community because I'm a Republican and most of them are Democrats; and I think they're probably thrilled to death with what's happening. I'm not; I think it's time to say, give it up -- just give it up.
LEFEVRE: Jeremy (ph), you're in the financial business; the market is in -- I can't say free-fall, but the market's in trouble this week. Why, and what needs to be done?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, I think something that Gore has been very successful at -- you know, whether he's going to win this election or not, who knows -- but what he's been successful at is creating a lot of apprehension and unknown in the market, and the investors just don't like that. And so he's been very successful at that and it's to be seen how that's going to affect the economy in the long run.
LEFEVRE: I want to put all three of you on the spot; OK, if you had a $5 bill to wage on who's going to be president at the end of January, where would you put that $5.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I would put it on Bush.
LEFEVRE: You would; Jan, how about you?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Absolutely Bush.
LEFEVRE: You think it will be Bush. Brian, what about you?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: W.
LEFEVRE: You think it's W.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: W.
LEFEVRE: OK folks, well there you have it. It's a foggy day in San Francisco, but obviously the views are crystal clear.
Lou, back to you.
WATERS: It's seldom not a foggy day in San Francisco.
