Bush's popular vote margin now barely 3 million

and he is well below 51% (at 50.75). I don't know how many more absentees are being counted and how many states have yet to finalize their tallies, but I am looking forward to the continued erosion of any sort of "mandate" claim, and the possiblility that Bush will go below 50.5% and denied the "rounding" of his percentage up to 51%. (I believe that will take about a 650,000 vote change in the margin.)

Anyway, here's to small victories!

on edit: The fucking press keeps repeating the 3.5 million number!!! :mad:

"...Few mainstream politicians dispute Bush's victory, and the incumbent's 3.5 million-vote margin nationwide was wider than any of the reported problems, which included insufficient or incomplete provisional ballots and, in some places, brazen partisan shenanigans."
