Some results from new polls on the presidential race. When results don't total 100 percent, the remainder either didn't know or refused to answer.

Suppose the election for president were being held today and you had to choose between Al Gore and Joseph Lieberman, the Democrats; George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, the Republicans; Ralph Nader and Winona LaDuke, the Green Party candidates; and Pat Buchanan, the Reform Party candidate. For whom would you vote?
