2. A 2004 NY True Vote Analysis
Edited on Mon Aug-31-09 02:22 PM by WillE
There is the recorded vote (the official vote).

And then there is the True Vote.
They are NEVER equal.

There are such things as uncounted votes (spoiled, absentee
and provisional).
There are stuffed ballots.
There are electronically switched votes.

And there are miscounted votes.
Some by mechanical machines.
Mostly miscounted by human programmers.
Ans also by corrupt election officials.

Let's determine the True 2004 NY vote.
Kerry won the state by 58-40% officially (the recorded vote).
But his True Vote was much higher: 64%

Why bother calculating? It was a landslide.
Who cares? It made no difference.

Well, Rove cared.
He needed to manufacture that Bush 3.0 million mandate.
He couldn't have a repeat of the 2000 selection in which Bush
lost the popular vote.

So where do you get the votes?
Where the Democrats live. In NY, CA...
The BIG BLUE states. Where no one was watching.

Like Three-card Monte.
All eyes were the battleground states.

The goal was to cut down Kerry's margin.
In NY, it was cut by 750,000 votes - from 2.2 million to 1.35
million.
In CA, it was cut by even more. Of course.
It's the BIGGEST BLUE state.

The 750,000 reduction in Kerry's NY margin provided 25% of
Bush's 3.0 million "mandate".
Mission accomplished.

Joseph Stalin once said: It's not who votes, it's who counts.

Willie Sutton, famous bank-robber, was once asked: 
Willie, why do you rob banks?

Willie replied: Because that's where the money is.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Base Case Scenario:
Its Kerry by 63.5-35.4%.
A 2.2 million vote landlside.

Total votes CAST in 2000 and 2004
5% Mortality.
98% Turnout.

Kerry NY share = National share + 10%

Sensitivity Analysis: 
Assume 94% Gore 2000 voter turnout; 
98% LIVING Bush 2000 voter turnout (no PHANTOMS allowed).

Kerry wins with 63.0% (2.1 million votes)

Worst Case scenario:
Kerry 89% of returning Bush voters? In NY?
Kerry 47% of New voters? In NY?

Kerry wins with 58.9% (1.45 million votes)
