53. They absolutely did change them.
Edited on Wed Nov-03-04 03:12 AM by FatDave
I was working on a spreadsheet calculating the differences. I decided to add "precincts reporting" to the sheet, so went back to the FL page to get that number. Originally they had:

M Bush: 52%
F Bush: 48%
M Kerry: 47%
F Kerry: 52%

<edit>These numbers show Bush with a lead of only 0.14%, which is certainly too close to call and also well below nader's exit poll number of 0.46% (Nader's numbers are not shown here for sake of brevity)</edit>

Changed to:

M Bush: 53%
F Bush: 50%
M Kerry: 46%
F Kerry: 49%

Total voters by sex stayed at 46% M, 54% F.

Reported results showed no change, Bush 52%, Kerry 47%, Nader 1%.

The original values showed a difference of:

Bush: +2.16%
Kerry: -2.70%
Total Difference: 4.86%

The new values show a difference of:

Bush: +0.62%
Kerry: -0.62%
Total Difference: 1.24%

<edit>Nice even numbers now, huh?</edit>

This refers to the values at

Now, my only question is is there a possible legitimate explanation for this? Is it possible some exit poll results just came in?

Unfortunately, I don't have a screenshot either.
