144. Yes, folks. Look at these numbers closely.
According to this CNN screen capture, at 12:21 am, Kerry led by these statistics. Just looking at the male vote:

Of 1,963 respondents, 40% of them were white men and they voted 51% for Kerry. That gives 400 votes for Kerry. Six percent were black men who voted 75% for Kerry, so that gives another 88 votes for Kerry, bringing the total male vote to 488 for Kerry.

A little more than an hour later, at 1:41 am, we have this result for men: Total respondents are 2020. The white male vote was still 40%, but with only 43% of them voting for Kerry. Thats 347 white, male votes for Kerry. Seven percent was black male voting 73% for Kerry. That give Kerry an additional 103 for a male total of 450.

So, even though the vote had increased from 1963 to 2020, an increase of 57 votes, Kerry actually LOST 38 votes during this time.

HOW DO YOU LOSE VOTES DURING A TALLY?
