Washington - Does George W Bush have more fizz, or has Al Gore gone flat?

In a poll by Roper Starch, conducted for beer maker Sam Adams, respondents said they would prefer to have a beer with Bush than Gore by a margin of 40 to 37 percent.

But 24 percent of those surveyed still hadn't made up their mind.

The gender gap showed up in this poll as well - 39 percent of women would rather drink a beer with vice president Gore, to 34 percent for Texas governor Bush. - Sapa-AFP
