The Presidential election results are finally in…
If you count chads with at least one corner detached as votes, and incompletely-filled optical ovals—the prevailing standard—Gore won by 60 votes.
If you require at least two corners of the chad to be detached, Gore won by 105 votes.
If you require only dimpled chads, Gore won by 107 votes.
If you take the county results instead, for the counties who completed a hand recount, Gore won by 171 votes.
If you accept dimpled chads only if there are other dimpled chads on the same ballot, Gore won by 42 votes.
If you count only the counties where the Gore team asked for a recount, Bush won.
If you don’t count any of the disputed votes, Bush won.
So, how is this being reported by the “liberal media”?
CNN: “A comprehensive study of the 2000 presidential election in Florida suggests that if the U.S. Supreme Court had allowed a statewide vote recount to proceed, Republican candidate George W. Bush would still have been elected president.”
Washington Post: “Florida Recounts Would Have Favored Bush”
