Bush in 2000 got 50,456,002

Gore got 50,999,897

if 59% of non Gore or Bush voters (3,949,201) went for Kerry that is 2,330,028 new votes for Kerry, and 513,396 new votes for Bush.

In addition, if Bush recaptured 90% of his old votes, he got 45,410,401 votes from his old voters. Kerry got 46,409,906 from Gore voters.

so far, just from the previous voters, that is

48,739,934 votes for Kerry
45,923,797 votes for Bush

so if 59% of the new voters went for Kerry, how did Bush win?

Did I do the math right? I'm kinda tired.
