195. Explanation
FLORIDA

Male: 52/47 Bush/Kerry 46%
Female: 52/48 Bush/Kerry 54%

(0.46 * 52) + (0.54 * 47) = 49.3% Kerry
(0.46 * 52) + (0.54 * 48) = 49.8% Bush

52/47 means that 52% of men voted for Bush, and 47% voted for Kerry and a total of 46% of voters were men.

Women turned out for Kerry far more than for Bush. This appears to be a factor as to why he was ahead in the exit polls.
