46. well, maybe
I'm certainly confused about something -- maybe your formatting.

Kerry won 193 (60%) of the 322 who responded in the
non-partisan middle group. Bush won 51% of the 218 refusers.

Bush won the 83-85% of those who refused in his partisan
He won 76-79% of the responders there as well.

alpha = 1.1, not .6/.4

Can we focus on the middle or "even" precincts for a moment, since those were the numbers I was citing?

Given your output, what do you think are the response rates K and B in the even precincts? I don't see where you are getting the 1.1. (I can see why .6/.4 is wrong, that isn't a problem -- no way is alpha 1.5 in the middle precincts.)
