Subject: FLORIDA ELECTION RESULTS
Please read the following message forwarded by Professor David Krackhardt who is currently in France:
As you probably all know, Bush has 1700 more votes in Florida over Gore. However, folks in Palm Beach were complaining that their ballots were confusing, and many people voted for Buchanan when they thought they were voting for Gore. With the help of my wife Chris, I analyzed the county by county presidential results for Florida. The
results are clear: the ballot for Palm Beach cost Gore approximately 2200 votes. A simple regression of Buchanan's vote on Bush's vote shows that Buchanan should have only gotten 800 votes, not 3400.
Don't believe me? Look for yourself: It's not even close! Palm Beach is an outlier beyond all belief!!!
I need help getting these results out to the world. If you have media contacts or now how to tip them, please have them contact me asap.
