166. discrepancies between 2000 2004 county percentages?
Like say there was a very SMALL, rural, conservative, farm county that went for Bush with 67% of its' vote in 2000, but in 2004 that same county only gave Bush 60%. Wouldn't it be odd that a such a county had such a swing away in % away from Bush but that other counties that you would expect to be more dem or independent would actually GAIN %votes for Bush? Shouldn't those counties that are dem and indy lose even more than 7% for Bush, rather than Bush gaining a % there? Could it be that a tiny little farming county was just considered too insignificant to tamper with the bbv and they only went for the big counties to fix it?

pm me. if you are interested
