deep:

That is an interesting analysis, but I disagree with it.

First, as Sting indicated, numerous military ballots for service personnel registered in Florida were not counted. Second, many votes in the largely conservative panhandle were not recorded, but were not re-counted per the "challenges." I do thik that the majority of Florida voters intended to vote for George W. Bush.

Regarding the "fluke" of the candidate who did not receive the most votes ascending to the White House, let's look back a few weeks earlier, when pundits and pollsters were predicting a Bush popular vote victory but a Gore electoral (Consitutional) vote victory. Then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton remarked that if that were the the case, it was according to the Consitution.

The electoral college did exactly what it was designed to do, which was prevent one state or region from deciding the election. Bush's narrow popular vote loss was largely due to the severity of his defeat in the state of California, where Gore won by roughly 1.3 million votes.

Unofficial Results vs. Certified Final Results. Hmmmmmmm....

Again I ask: How did Bush "steal" the election? How is it that he is an illegitimate President?
