Subject: RE: BS: Help! The computer ate OH & FL votes!
Gads, I hate this kind of thing. Part of me says, Let the bush clean up his own mess! The more sensible part of me realizes that it's not just George who would suffer- it's the USA - it's US!- and the rest of the world.
In the graphs, notice the coherence of the exit polls and vote tally in each of the states that did NOT use electronic voting. There is a definite validity to exit polling. Very little difference it and the actual tally. If these graphs are correct. the differences are damning.
I keep remembering on Election Night how flabbergasted the networks were at the difference.
Here are the figures from the Electoral College on the pertinent states, states that show a major discrepancy:
Distribution of Electoral Votes
Total Electoral Vote: 538
New Mexico 5
North Carolina 15
A total of 67 votes.
Dubya ostensibly won by 34 votes.
