278. Data explains why suppress the black vote...
There's great info in the exit info about the African American vote . It says that for the 11,027 polled voters, 11% were African American and 90% voted for Kerry and 10% for Bush. So suppressing this group suppresses the Kerry vote 9 fold relative to Bush votes. It would be interesting to run the numbers for Ohio to see how many Kerry votes were lost in those precincts with too few voting machines.
Are there any other calculations to be done with this data?
