132. I'm trying to picture the assumptions
It's x1=83.27%, x2=13.04%. Anything higher or lower makes KV <> BV (including negative values, x1/x2 is linear not calculus). Your answers on the other thread neglected the primary constraint:

If Kerry gets 2% of Bush 2000 voters,
he needs 94.20% of Gore voters to tie


KV 60916997 <> BV 60917403 (Nader's a constant for lack of Nader variable, NadV=425600 (0.08*n2000)+(0.01*nv2004))

If Kerry gets 8% of Bush 2000 voters,
he needs 88.26% of Gore
voters to tie


KV 60917107 <> BV 60917293 (almost to the tipping point)

If Kerry gets 13.04% of "Bush 2000 voters", 60917200=60917200. Assuming you don't buy into all that sociology crap.
