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

Then by correlation, the second line (Female: 52/48 Bush/Kerry 54%):

52/48 means that 52% of women voted for Bush, and 48% voted for Kerry and a total of 54% of voters were women.

I really don't think that's correct, because that means that Kerry got 47% of men and only 48% of women. Are you suggesting that Kerry got less than of the women's vote than than Bush? You really need to get these number right because nothing you've said so far makes sense.
