173. But this doesn't answer the underlying question....
My point is, why isn't this study about the Florida counties being widely discussed not to mention dissected?

It seeks to make the issue more complicated by factoring in demographics and all these other variables, and from where I'm sitting, this is not a complicated issue in any respect.

Reading this information and on how they weighted the results, has shown this issue is very cut and dry and displays a clear factor of certain machine vendors exhibiting unexplained 4% swings.

It isn't complex, it isn't a huge enigma, its a very simple problem largely and it has gone under recognized and not reported. The problem isn't with the counties, all the different demographic adjustments or anything else and clearly that is not the purpose here.

The problem is with the machines plain and matter of factly, and the machines by vendor, not by type are the culprit. A Diebold manufactured tabulator or ES&S tabulator are almost guaranteed to show a disproportionate swing or be involved in some fraudulent activity. Another machine/tabulator such as the new model by Hart Intervic is about 90% less likely to show gross manipulation or errors. That's the clear problem, and there is not any study to address it.

I ask about the study by registered machine vendor and lobbyist, not by model, type, or demographic. What has become of this, given the reported bribery charges and allegations?
