The Seattle vote, 2000

On July 5, we ran an editorial entitled “Island Seattle” highlighting a Moore Poll that found Bush support in Seattle at 9 percent. The figures that the editorial needed, but did not have, were the results of the general election of 2000. Now we have the figures, courtesy of King County Elections. They are:


Al Gore (Dem) 72.25%, 206,249 votes
George Bush (Rep) 19.49%, 55,632 votes
Ralph Nader (Grn) 6.86%, 19,595 votes
All others 1.39%, 3,982 votes

That’s quite a skew, considering that Bush and Gore were essentially tied in the national vote, and Gore’s advantage statewide was only 5 percent.
