Another document from an adviser to Vice President Al Gore offers instructions on how to respond to a January 1999 poll in USA Today that showed candidate George W. Bush leading Gore. The adviser urged Al Gore aides to “UNDERSPIN it and downplay its significance”.

This is the second batch of President Bill Clinton records to be released in recent weeks. The documents are being closely watched as former first lady and secretary of state Hillary Clinton considers another presidential bid in 2016.
