43. why?
"The very idea that 14% of Gore 2000 voters would be so happy with bush to vote for him four years later is what is hardly possible."

What is your argument?

1. "Indeed, the rest of the voters who DNV 2000 went Kerry." I have no idea what that means. I certainly don't know what it tells us about Gore voters.

2. "There was a groundswell of democratic turnout..." So? There was also a groundswell of Republican turnout. But neither of those facts tells us whom Gore voters voted for.

3. "...and a great deal of disgust with bush, with his approval rating near 50%." Well, that indicates about equal amounts of disgust and non-disgust. And, again, doesn't tell us whom Gore voters voted for.

So, do you have any basis for your judgment about "hardly possible"? If so, please state it.
