BUSH INTERNALS REVEALED: LEADING GORE BY 5% IN FLORIDA; CALIFORNIA BY 2%
The DRUDGE REPORT has obtained the Bush campaign's most recent internal polling data.
The confidential data commissioned by Bush shows the Texas Governor topping Vice President Gore by 5% in Florida, 9% in Michigan and by 2% in California, within the margin of error.
The fresh results have given senior Bush staffers a deepened sense of confidence going into Tuesday's election.
Bush's internal polling shows the governor up 4% in Washington state and up 10% in Missouri. One sour spot for Bush: Pennsylvania, where he finds himself down 2% into the homestretch.
A campaign spokesman refused comment on the polling leak.

Anyone notice that the smart comments from Al Gores supporters are showing less emotion in them during the closing days of the Gore 2000 campaign?

Nope, we notice that the Repugs are strangely silent since the D-Dubya-I was revealed. It's over for the scumbag drunk. Heee hee hee!

Results: Gore wins Michigan (where he "trailed by 9%").
Gore wins California handily (where he "trailed by 2%").
Florida (where Gore "trailed by 5%") is down to a recount, because only 1700 votes separate Bush and Gore - out of nearly 6 million cast.

Zogby was the most accurate poll. They have showed the candidates much closer to a tie than any other polls over the last few months.
