16. THE POLL AVERAGES ARE EVEN MORE ACCURATE THAN CALCULATED ABOVE
Edited on Mon Feb-21-05 10:14 AM by TruthIsAll
The average percentages are even closer than stated above. I
incorrectly included the "Whites" category in the
total average. 
As whites reflect less than 100% of the votes, the averages
were off, so I removed it from the list and recalculated. 

NOTE THAT THE DOLE AND PEROT AVERAGE WEIGHTED POLL NUMBERS
ARE EACH WITHIN .01% OF THE ACTUALS.
