90. dude, they DON'T HAVE TO
TIA, you can declare victory until you are blue in the face, but you still will never convince folks who know about surveys. That is, in a nutshell, why your arithmetic exercise has not taken AAPOR by storm.

The question is not whether 6% more of 2004 voters actually voted for Bush rather than Gore in 2000. It is whether it is plausible that 6% more of 2004 voters would have reported voting for Bush rather than Gore.

If you are able to indicate your comprehension of those two sentences, we can continue. Otherwise, you have a brave -- but UTTERLY IRRELEVANT -- demonstration that "it can't be true that 43% of 2004 voters were Bush 2000 voters."
