17.  Bush 2000/2004: 50.456 -1.77 = 48.7/122.3 = 39.8% has ZERO MoE
You miss the essence of the post.

The Sample size was 3168 for this question.
The MoE is 1.77%
MoE= 1/sqrt(3168)= 1.77%, not 4%.

But the MoE and sample size are irrelevant for this demographic.
We KNOW the proper weight for Bush 2000 can be no more than 39.8%.

Just focus on the facts:
Given that 48.7 mm former Bush 2000 were alive in Nov. 2004, what is the maximum percentage Bush 2000 voters could be of the total 122.3 million who voted in 2004?

That's it.
