Electoral Analysis Has Bush out Front


Lambro, Donald, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


George W. Bush is leading Al Gore in 29 states with a total of 262 electoral votes - just eight short of the 270 needed to win the presidency, according to a state-by-state survey by The Washington Times.

In a contest that may not be as close in the Electoral College as many media pundits have predicted, Mr. Gore is currently ahead in only 12 states - including the two biggest electoral states, California and New York - which would give him a total of 167 votes.

The Times survey, based on the latest independent news media polls in the states, showed that nine states with 109 electoral votes - including three major states in the industrial Midwest - remain tossups.

The Bush campaign's electoral estimate in its own state-by-state survey gives 273 electoral votes to Mr. Bush, 138 votes to Mr. Gore, with 127 votes still up for grabs.

The Times survey shows Mr. Bush remains ahead in all of the Western plains and mountain states, and most of the Southern and border states, while Mr. Gore leads in most of the Northeast and in California in the West.

Mr. Bush, however, has strong leads in Indiana, Ohio and Missouri and a slight edge in Iowa.

In the West, Mr. Bush is ahead in Alaska, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and his home state of Texas.

While Mr. Gore has the edge in most polls in California, the contest has significantly tightened there, and some recent polls find that Mr. Bush may have pulled even with his Democratic opponent.

A major factor in Mr. Bush's increasing strength in the state is his rising support among Hispanic voters. Recent polls show that he is getting more than a third of their support - an unusually high percentage for a Republican candidate. …
