2. CHECK OUT THE TINY CENSUS MOE'S
Edited on Sun May-29-05 01:05 AM by TruthIsAll
The total us vote of 125.736 mm is correct to within 0.30% at
the 90% confidence level (+/377,000 voters).

Note how close the given MoE is to the calculated MoE (within
0.02%)using the formula:
MoE= 1/sqrt(n), where n= population size (000)
