6. You totally miss the point. I am using actual 2000 and 2004 numbers.

You say:
"I suspect you're trying to hint at some calculation that makes a variety of assumptions about how voters stayed consistently for or against Bush between 2000 and 2004, about what those who voted in 2004 but not 2000 did, or something else. The basic fact remains this: from the assumptions you state, any percentage of votes for Bush in 2004 are possible, up to and including 100%"

That's contrary to reality, of course. But it's not mathematically contrary to your problem statement.

I say:
Please do the math!
You are totally off-base.
I am assuming nothing.

I asked you to do a simple calculation.
Are you familiar with the national exit poll?
I think not.
This is a very simple calculation.

Please do the calculation!
HINT: Its simple division.

I will try to be patient with you.
