Tracking poll: Bradley gains ground on Gore

January 30, 2000
Web posted at: 2:05 p.m. EST (1905 GMT)

Bill Bradley has gained ground and currently wins support from almost as many likely Democratic primary voters as Al Gore, according to a new CNN/USA Today/Gallup tracking poll.

In interviews conducted Thursday through Saturday, 47 percent of likely voters chose Bradley and 48 percent picked Gore. That's a gain of four points for Bradley, whose campaign tactics in the last few days appear to have energized his supporters and convinced Granite State voters that he is more trustworthy than Gore.

The key question is whether Bradley can consolidate those gains or whether the electorate will continue to swing between the two Democrats as the election approaches -- and only additional polling will answer that question.

On the GOP side, John McCain has a narrow 39 percent -- 34 percent edge over George W. Bush, with Steve Forbes at 15 percent and Alan Keyes at 9 percent. McCain's strength is that he is seen as someone who is trustworthy, in touch with average Americans, and has a vision for the country's future.

The poll is based on interviews with 754 likely Democratic primary voters and 958 likely Republican primary voters. It was conducted January 27-29.
