33. I just tried TIA's software. I was trying to explore a hypothesis.
Edited on Thu Oct-06-05 12:03 AM by kiwi_expat
I was trying to ADD enough Bush voters-who-didn't-vote-in-2000 (but did vote previously) to see how many I would need in order to change the early-exit-poll data to a Bush victory of 3 million.

The software was highly interactive and a definite improvement over using just a calculator. It did nicely re-calculate the various votes (in millions), which was very helpful.

But I still had to use my calculator to re-calculate the percents for variables that I was not modifying (to add up to 100%). It would be lovely if TIA were to have a version that would do that work for me. :-)
