Vote Analysis: Bush Wins, Again
By ABCNEWS.com
Despite the uproar over Florida's presidential election results, a media analysis suggests George W. Bush still would have won the state and the presidency. Weigh In

George W. Bush still would have gotten more votes than Al Gore (news - web sites) even if the U.S. Supreme Court (news - web sites) hadn't halted the manual recount in Florida, according to a comprehensive analysis of uncounted ballots.In fact, Bush's 537-vote margin of victory would have increased to 1,665 under the ballot-counting standards Gore's supporters had advocated, according to a review of 64,248 uncounted ballots in all 67 of Florida's counties conducted by The Miami Herald, its parent company Knight Ridder, and USA Today.

The analysis has Bush, a Republican, winning under just about every scenario under consideration, except one: if a recount had continued under the standards advocated by Bush supporters, Gore would have won by three votes.

Report: Bush Would Likely Have Won Florida
By Frances Kerry

MIAMI (Reuters) - George W. Bush almost certainly would have held his lead in Florida, the state that was key to clinching the presidential election, even if the U.S. Supreme Court (news - web sites) had not stopped a vote recount, results from an analysis of ballots released by the Miami Herald on Tuesday showed.

Reporting on a review of 64,248 ballots in all 67 Florida counties conducted by the Herald and its parent company Knight Ridder, in partnership with USA Today newspaper, the Herald said Bush's razor-thin margin in the state would actually have tripled using the generous standards for vote counting that were advocated by Democrat Al Gore (news - web sites)'s campaign.

ha!
