27. Alpha: max= 1.5 in Kerry precincts (not hit); 1.20 Bush max (hit)
Edited on Mon Jun-06-05 10:49 AM by TruthIsAll
The non-partisan middle went up to 1.10

That's why the optimizer is useful. We supply a range of constraints; it chooses whatever values are necessary within the range in order to produce a feasible solution which meets ALL constraints.

Alpha would be be higher than 1.20 for Bush if we opened up the Kerry precinct range (as in the prior run).

Try doing THAT manually, or with a simulator.
