74. Does this make sense?
Edited on Fri Mar-25-05 09:04 AM by TruthIsAll
"I must be simplifying too much....but to me, 3.27% of 13660 is 447".

Fist consider the popular vote percentage, then apply it to the 13660.

Bush ended up with 50.73%. To match this, he needed 667 of the final 613 (WTF?). He already had 48% (6263) of the first 13047.
IOW, to gain 2.73% in the popular vote, he needed 109% (667) of the remaining respondents (613).
