    This was the election when I was 10 years old (and the first presidential election I followed).

    Popular vote:

    Al Gore/Joe Lieberman (Democrat)- 50,999,897 (48.38% est.)

    George W. Bush/Dick Cheney (Republican)- 50,456,002 (47.87% est.)

    Ralph Nader/Winona LaDuke (Green)- 2,882,955 (2.74% est.)

    Pat Buchanan/Ezola B. Foster (Reform)- 448,895 (0.43% est.)

    Harry Browne/Art Olivier (Libertarian)- 384,431 (0.36% est.)

    Howard Phillips/Curtis Frazier (Constitution)- 98,020 (0.09% est.)

    John Hagelin/Nat Goldhaber (Natural Law/Reform)- 83,714

    Other- 51,186

    However, popular vote doesn't matter, but electoral vote. Here is how it went

    George W. Bush/Dick Cheney (Republican)- 271 (New Hampshire, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and Alaska)

    Al Gore/Joe Lieberman (Democrat)-266 (Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, DC-1, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, California, and Hawaii)

    Abstention- 1 (DC-2)
