Manchester, NH ( - Final tracking polls by a host of organizations released late Monday night indicate victory for Vice President Al Gore and Arizona Senator John McCain in Tuesday's first-in-the-nation New Hampshire presidential primary.

A Franklin Pierce/WNDS-TV poll showed McCain beating Bush by 11 points, 40 to 29 percent, with Gore leading Bradley 47 to 41 percent.

An Internet poll, by Electronic Vote, done for, has McCain ahead by nine points, 40 to 31 percent, with Gore leading Bradley, 53 to 47 percent.

A University of New Hampshire poll, done for WMUR-TV and Fox News, has McCain leading Bush, 41 to 35 percent, with Gore topping Bradley by a margin of 51 to 45 percent.

A survey done by Quinnipiac College has McCain on top 39 to 29 percent and Gore beating Bradley 53 to 36 percent.

An NBC-MSNBC survey has McCain ahead 39 to 32 percent while Gore leads Bradley 49 to 37 percent.

However, the final tracking poll from the locally-based American Research Group found Bush and McCain in a statistical dead heat, although Bush led McCain by two percentage points. The survey has a margin of error of four percent. The same survey has Gore leading Bradley by five percent.

In each survey, Forbes registers in the low-to-mid teens with Alan Keyes still in single digits. While Bauer shows up in single numbers in some polls, other surveys show him with zero percent of the vote.
