64. The optimizer determined the partisan alphas AND the wtd mean aggregate
Edited on Mon Jul-18-05 10:07 AM by TruthIsAll
The aggregate total alpha is the weighted (by votes) sum of the individual partisanship alphas.

They are NOT calculated mean alphas. These are NOT calculated median alphas. These are much more than that.

These are alphas derived by the optimizer which satisfy the input partisan alpha range constraints (0 to 10) AND the E-M partisan WPE constraints AND the E-M individual partisanship responses (R) AND the Bush 51.24% two party vote - ALL of which were provided by E-M.

If you can come up with a set of alternative partisan alphas which will satisfy ALL the above constraints, please do so.

I would love to see it.
