Tracking poll: Bush still holds slim lead over Gore

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- GOP presidential candidate George W. Bush's slim lead over Democratic Vice President Al Gore has passed the one-week mark, the longest period that either candidate has maintained an advantage since the fall campaign began, according to Saturday's CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

Based on interviews with 2,222 likely voters conducted from November 1 through 3, 47 percent of the people polled said they planned to vote for Bush; 43 percent said Gore, and 5 percent said they favored Green Party candidate Ralph Nader.

If Nader receives 5 percent of Tuesday's votes, the Green Party would qualify for federal funding in the 2004 presidential election.

The poll showed Reform Party candidate Patrick Buchanan with less than half of 1 percent.

Because Bush's 1976 arrest in Maine for driving under the influence of alcohol wasn't revealed until Thursday night, only some of Thursday's respondents had knowledge of the report when Gallup contacted them.

Therefore at this point, it is difficult to say whether news of that incident has affected voter support.

CNN will be releasing results of its tracking polls every day until this Tuesday's election. The polls monitor public opinion of the presidential race over intervals of two to three days.
