PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The United States presidential election of 2000, was held on Nov. 7, 2000, in which Republican George W. Bush narrowly lost the popular vote to Democrat Al Gore but defeated Gore in the electoral college.

On election night, no clear winner emerged. Print and broadcast media cited often contradictory exit-polling numbers, and the races in OR and NM would remain too close to call for some days. Ultimately, the contest focused on FL. Networks initially projected Gore the winner in FL, but later they declared that Bush had opened an insurmountable lead. Gore called Bush to concede the election, but in the early hours of the following morning it became apparent that the FL race was much closer than Gore’s staff had originally believed.

Fewer than 600 votes separated the candidates, and that margin appeared to be narrowing. About 3:00 am Gore called a stunned Bush to retract his concession. FL state election law required a mandatory statewide machine recount. By November 10 the machine recount was complete, and Bush’s lead stood at 327 votes out of 6 million cast.

The election was finally decided by the US Supreme Court with a controversial 5–4 decision to reverse the Florida Supreme Court’s recount order, effectively awarding the presidency to Bush.
