Presidential Election

Results -- blue represents Bush states, red represents Gore states.

In one of the closest presidential elections in U.S. history, Democrat Al Gore barely lost to Republican George W. Bush. After a close and controversial vicotry for Bush in Florida, he defeated Gore by a margin of 271 to 266, with one DC elector refusing to vote for Gore. This defeat was twice as punishing on Gore as he actually won the popular vote 51,003,926 to 50,460,110.

U.S. Senate

Results -- light blue represents Republican holds, dark blue Republican pickups, pink Democratic holds, red Democratic pickups.

In the Senate, Democrats had a net gain of four seats, creating a tied Senate. This effectively gave Republicans control, since Dick Cheney, who was elected Vice President on the Republican ticket, would break a tie vote. Upon Republican Jim Jeffords' decision to become an Independent in May 2001, the Democrats gained a one-seat majority.
