2. Gore Leads in Iowa Poll

A Des Moines Register poll released Sunday (7/4) shows Al Gore with a substantial 64%-24% lead over Bill Bradley among likely Democratic caucus voters.

The Des Moines Register said the Vice President "owes his lead to a huge reservoir of good will among Iowa Democrats" and that his "40-point lead in the poll is similar to national presidential preference polls showing Gore running well ahead of Bradley among Democrats at this early stage of the race." (Des Moines Register 7/4/99)
