The 2000 Presidential Election: Why Gore Lost
Gerald M. Pomper asserts that the presidential election of 2000 represents a paradox of democracy, distinctive in the eventual victory of the candidate with fewer popular votes and the decisive intervention of the Supreme Court. The results show sharp divisions among the electorate, both geographically and socially, as well as a unique Republican advantage in the "gender gap." The election carries important implications for the future of the presidency, the electoral college, and the stability of American democracy.
