Bush Catches Gore In U.S. Presidential Race

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Six weeks before the U.S. presidential election, polls Sunday showed Republican George W. Bush has erased Democrat Al Gore's lead and the race is tied once again.
Three weekend polls by Gallup, Newsweek and Fox TV showed the Nov. 7 race a statistical dead heat. The vice president led by 3 percentage points in a Newsweek survey -- he had led by 14 points a week ago -- but Bush jumped into the lead by a single point in a Gallup daily tracking poll. In the Fox poll, the two candidates were tied.
The surveys followed a good week for the Texas governor who enjoyed successful appearances on TV chat shows and managed to get his campaign back on message. Gore was dogged by allegations that he invented a story about his mother-in-law paying three times as much for a drug as his dog.
