40. I'm trying to keep up here
... so please bare with me.

I understand how you got 6%, using two party percentages, bush +3% and Kerry -3%. I have looked at it this way my self, after all we only care about the Bush and Kerry votes.

I'm still lost concerning Kerry out performing Gore by an average 2.5% for non-trid counties. (Is this 47 counties?) Is the 2.5% two party or three party percentages?

Also 23,031 is the total votes for all parties. How can you use two party percentages and use the total votes?

I hope you don't look at me as being a pest, but I have to see where the numbers come from.

Thanks and
Take Care
