We weren't surprised when we polled 133 Inc. 500 CEOs and found that in the presidential race they overwhelmingly supported Senator Bob Dole over President Clinton.

Dole 71%

Clinton 26%

No one 3%

Nor were we surprised to see how many preferred Jack Kemp or Colin Powell to either Clinton or Dole in a hypothetical three-man race.

Dole 37%

Clinton 20%

Kemp 36%

No one 8%

What did surprise us was the CEOs' indifference to a third-party candidacy by Ross Perot.

Dole 63%

Clinton 23%

Perot 8%

No one 6%
