225. plenty of statistical power there
9.4% of Gore voters misrecalled their vote, 1.9% of Bush voters.

Fisher's Exact Test gives a probability of 1 in 27,740 that this difference could have occurred by chance.

Looks like Gore voters really did have worse memories than Bush voters. However it is possible that they regained their powers of recall by 2004. Or not.

Or maybe it wasn't a random sample.
