Tracking poll: Bush holds narrow lead in tight contest
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Republican presidential hopeful George W. Bush holds a narrow lead over his Democratic rival, Vice President Al Gore, in Tuesday's CNN/USA Today/Gallup tracking poll.
The survey of 790 likely voters, conducted October 7-9, shows Bush with 47 percent and Gore with 44 percent. This edge is within the poll's 3.5 percent margin of error.
While this narrowing from yesterday's result indicates that the presidential race may be getting tighter, it will take further movement in the coming days to confirm a significant shift in the electorate. That said, this remains a neck-and-neck race for the White House.
CNN will be releasing the results of 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.
