27. Well, I didn't exactly miss it
Edited on Fri Feb-09-07 08:39 AM by Febble
but they could have been new voters, voters who didn't vote in 2000, but voted in previous elections, or Gore voters. I'd like to know how TIA comes up with his answer. I don't know the answer.

ETA, although from that plot, it looks to me as though while the Democratic vote has expanded pretty steadily over the years, blipping upwards briefly for Carter against Ford, post Nixon, the Republican vote has been more volatile, suffering after Nixon, and losing to Perot. So my hunch would be that at least some of the "new" Bush voters in 2004 would have been Perot voters in the nineties. But who am I to say? I'm not even an American.
