Final CBS Poll: Slim Bush Lead

NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2004

Forty-five percent of registered voters say they'd be "excited" or "optimistic" about a Bush. An equal number feel the same way about a Kerry win.

A CBS News poll taken up to the eve of Election Day 2004 found the electorate as it has been for weeks and as it was four years ago — sharply divided.

The telephone survey of 1,600 adults, which was conducted from Friday to Monday, found President Bush with a 49-47 percent lead over Sen. John Kerry among likely voters including people leaning toward a candidate.

That lead was within the poll's three-point margin of error.

Among all registered voters, it is only a one-point Bush edge - 48 percent to 47 percent.

Ralph Nader draws 1 percent and 3 percent of respondents said they were undecided.

A CBS News/New York Times poll released Sunday showed Mr. Bush with a 49-46 percent lead. Another CBS News survey, issued on Monday, had the president with a slim 47-46 percent advantage.
