15. Trying to come up with something plausible...
that would match the official election returns.

In order to make it work, I had to:

- raise new voters to 25 million (significantly above the 17% Mitofsky reported)
- limit Bush's abandonment rate to 6%
- raise the Gore/Kerry abondmentment rate to 11%
- enforce 100% reparticipation for year 2000 Bush voters
- limit Kerry voters reparticipators to somewhat less than 100%

Note: this NOT not what I think happened...
