8. TOO LATE TO EDIT THIS WORDING CORRECTION..
Edited on Wed Mar-30-05 12:01 PM by TruthIsAll
"IN THE PRELIMINARY POLL, THE BUSH 41.26% WEIGHT EXACTLY
MATCHED THE PREVIOUSLY CALCULATED MAXIMUM WEIGHT (AFTER
ROUNDOFF) OF 41%/39%".

IT SHOULD READ:

AS DISPLAYED IN THE PRELIMINARY POLL, THE BUSH WEIGHT OF 41% EXACTLY MATCHES (AFTER ROUNDOFF) THE ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM BUSH WEIGHT (41.26%) REFERENCED ABOVE.

THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT IS JUST THE BUSH 2000 VOTE (50.456 MILLION) DIVIDED BY THE TOTAL 2004 VOTE (122.26 MILLION) OR 41.26%

IMPORTANT NOTE:
THE GORE 38.74% WEIGHT MATCHES THE PRELIMINARY POLL (AFTER ROUNDOFF) AS IT MUST, SINCE THE TOTAL MUST EQUAL 100%.

Gore% = 100% - Bush% - Nader% - Other%
Gore% = 100% - 41.26% - 3% - 17%
Gore% = 38.74%
