Same number :shrug:

I have no ideas or speculative spew... just a thought.

IT'S REALLY ODD.

Anybody else? (is there a thread that someone's already started?)

5. In Florida there were ~220,000.
Edited on Tue Jan-11-05 01:08 AM by LoZoccolo
97,000 from the felon purge
100,000 overvotes
and 20,000 votes gone from Gore due to butterfly ballots

3. This is really "odd"
In OHIO, "*" gets 118.000 "difference" over Kerry.

Nader's totals in OHIO 2000 were...about 118.000 votes!

Just one more "coincidence."

6. There's so much "fuzzy math" it's crazy.
Raul, funny now we're following the numbers instead of the money.
