Deep,

Bush wins Texas (His Home State)
Al Gore loses Tenessee (His Home State)

Tennessee would have won the election for Al Gore.



Debbie,

If Gore had not challenged the results, looking for partially punched ballots to count, then there would not have been a judge invlolved. I do not blame him for it. Everything was on the line. Many $$$$$$. The judges ruled. Case closed. No different than if it wen the other way. Is it the ideal way, no, but the judge did not decide the election, the people who voted correctly and incorrectly decided the election.

Peace

Who cares about the judge? Gore lost the election because he messed up. He was ahead by alot and he lost his lead. that's not Bush's fault. if Gore hadn't dropped the ball, he could have won his own state and Florida.

Puh-leeze. If you think Gore had a chance of winning this godforsaken state, you're dreaming.

I'm actually surprised people in TN could vote at all.

Then that must make all of Bush's supporters stupid rednecks! Since we're going with typical stereotypes and all.

Let's wrap this up:

Let's take a gander at these blue states, shall we?

California? Would love to live there.
Pennsylvania? Lived there once, would love to move back.
Delaware? Been there, would live there near the Maryland border. No sales tax!
Maryland? I'd die to live there.
New Jersey? I'd die if I lived there.
Connecticut? My husband would die if we lived there.
New York? We'd both die if we lived there.
Rhode Island? *blink* uhh...where were we?

And some of the red:
Florida: I'd love to move there.

And so we have...
# of cool blue states: 8
# of cool red states: 1

# of lame blue states: 12
# of lame red states: 27

ratios:
2:3 blue (cool:lame)
1:27 red (cool:lame)

I rest my case.

If the two of you had seen my ealrier posts in this thread:

The reason for those demographic statistics is simple:

The areas that Bush won heavily are the geographically vast, rural regions of the Southern and Rocky Mountain/Big Sky states where all of us dumb rednecks and cowboys live.

then you would hopefully detect the sarcasm of my participation in this post (with the exception of my posts about beer, ballots and Earl Hilliard). I was simply scoffing at the insinuation that states with higher test scores cast better votes in elections. Please note that I initially pointed the (sarcastically) stereotypical finger at myself, being a conservative voter from Alabama, the "dumb redneck" demographic. My county voted 88% for Bush, if I recall.

then why do we have an electoral college?

you may have been sarcastic, but maybe i'm not the only one who didn't know you were poking fun

They didn't identify with him.......Between his father representing the state for many years and Al Gore, being their Senetor for a number of years, how can you say this??????

family loyalties, right?

That map makes sense. In *general,* rural areas went resoundingly for Bush, while urban areas voted for Gore.

If anything, that map shows how terribly polarized we have become as a nation, and I think it should startle us as to why so many people have fled into urban areas, versus remaining in the rural areas.

Remember: Gore still won the primary vote, and, if he had pursued a statewide recount of Florida, he would have won that too. That county map is just simply disturbing if you look at it from this perspective.

that is your opinon.
it brings clarity to many others..
the thing i remember is Gore only wanting selected counties recounted in Florida, a total of 4, not the entire state..
..furthur demonistrating his character.
