15% OF GORE VOTERS (7.65 MM) SUFFERED FROM ALZHEIMER'S IN 2004

Concerning the Final National Exit Poll, in which 43% of 2004 voters said they voted for Bush. We have shown 43% is impossible, since 43% of 122.3 = 52.57 million, and Bush only got 50.456mm votes in 2000.

So how do the naysayers now explain this?
Simple.
Gore voters forgot that they voted for Gore when they said they voted for Bush.

Ok, now let's restate the 43/37 problem slightly.

Assume that 40% Bush/40% Gore was the actual response, but 3 out of 40 Gore voters forgot they voted for Gore and said they voted for Bush. That's how 40/40 became 43/37.

But let's look closely at that calculation:

If a Gore voter forgot who he/she voted for, couldn't he/she have been equally likely to say that they voted for Gore as for Bush?

By the law of averages (or the Law of Large Numbers) 50% of forgetful Gore voters would say they voted for Gore and 50% would say they voted for Bush. Just flip a coin.

Therefore, 6 out of the 40 Gore voters must have forgotten who they voted for, with 3 saying they voted for Bush and 3 saying they voted for Gore.

Now 6/40 = 15%. That means that 15% (7.65 MILLION) of 51 million Gore voters forgot who they voted for. Let's assume for the purpose of this discussion, that there were no liars among them, just those who forgot.

Are we really expected to believe that not only did 7.65 MILLION Gore voters suffer from Alzheimer's or Amnesia, but AT THE SAME TIME ALSO BELIEVE THAT NOT A SINGLE BUSH VOTER SUFFERED FROM EITHER MALADY?
