CBS News

The convention also warmed up women and minority voters, who had been unexpectedly with Gore. According to the Washington Post – ABC poll, as of August 22, 2000, Gore had attracted 56% of women voters, while Bush had 51% of the male vote. Support for Gore from women voters registered as Independents grew significantly after the Democratic convention.
