28. sure, I'm just trying to skip the step where
...TIA quotes himself, WHERE DID BUSH GET 15.7MM NEW VOTERS?, and accuses you of ignoring his question. I don't think TIA has really thought about the intellectual work required to attempt to answer his question.

As you say, it's some combination of first-time voters, other folks who didn't vote in 2000 but did vote in 2004, and Gore voters -- plus a relatively small number of 'other' voters. And as I said, if we had more reliable estimates of how many people were in the first two groups (no matter whom they voted for), the other numbers would be less speculative.

I don't think TIA grasps the concept of scientific uncertainty. Evolutionary theory and climate science must drive him nuts.
