12. BASED ON THE US. ANNUAL DEATH RATE OF 8.7 PER 1000...
Edited on Mon Mar-21-05 07:49 PM by TruthIsAll
that is about 35 per 1000 over a four year period or 3.5%.

That means that approximately 3.5 million voters in 2000 died.

Assuming half voted for Bush in 2000, at least 1.75 million voters could not have voted this time. We know that 50.45 million voted for Bush in 2000.

The maximum number who could have voted for him in 2004 was therefore
50.45 - 1.75 = 48.7. And so 48.7/122.2 = 39.8% is the maximum percentage of 2004 voters who could have voted for Bush in 2000.
That assumes that nor a single Bush 2000 voter:
1) sat out the election,
2) voted for Kerry, or
3) was incapacitated and unable to get to the polls.

If you believe the final exit poll 43%, then you must also believe that 52.57 million voted for Bush. We have just shown that this is TOO HIGH BY 3.8 MILLION AT MINIMUM, WHEN THE DEATH RATE IS CONSIDERED AND PROBABLY 2-3 MILLION MORE WHEN YOU CONSIDER THE OTHER THREE POSSIBILITIES.
