The Nasdaq peaked on March 10th, 2000 (for good) at 5048.16 and closed at 3,415.79 on Election Day representing a ~32% decline in a period of 8 months. Did this have any effect?

It might have cost Gore the election. It could have been a factor that just decided not to show up in the exit polling. But, was still in the voter's minds.

In an age of unpredictable election outcomes Bruce finds himself reelected in 1908 against an opponent whose name escapes me at the moment. Blanche Bruce served as Vice President under Frederick Douglas whom Cleveland defeated in 1900. His Vice President runs to replace Bruce in 1912.

At such a miniscule margin, a thousand minor factors are responsible for Gore's loss, ranging from the weather to traffic to what was on TV on election day to the price of milk.

On the Atlas Forums, it's likely that this is an inane statement. So I'll respond to the original poster's question: Yes, it had an effect on the margin, and it's likely that it hurt Gore more than Bush. And if it did, it almost certainly affected the outcome of the election.

Which is basically what I said, except written differently.

Almost. I put greater emphasis on the fact that altering virtually any of the conditions on election day in 2000 could have changed the outcome. To be clear, I was referring to my first sentence as inane, not anything that you'd said.
