However, recent Quinnipiac University polls in both Florida and Ohio - crucial swing states - indicate that Gore's popularity among voters in those states, at least, is not high. Key numbers from a write up of the poll:
Gore is in a little better shape with the November electorate, but not enough to consider him electable. In Quinnipiac's surveys he was 41-percent favorable, 50 percent unfavorable in Ohio; 46 percent favorable, 47 percent unfavorable in Florida.
Not good for a man whose argument (esp. vis-a-vis Hillary) would be about "electability."
