statement four is wrong.
it assumes that of the voting population, those who did not support bush supported gore. there was a strong third party (nader), invalidating that assumption.
1 - (1 - 0.47)(0.51) = 0.7297
Had that assumption been made, it would be 73%.
Actually, statements three and four are wrong; most of the people who didn't vote actually believed the newspaper's predictions, and believed their vote couldn't change the massive tide of public opinion.
Sucks to be us.
true enough - if we change "disapproved of" to "expressed disapproval of", however, three becomes true again.
99% didn't vote for him.
So, I'm amused by the resounding vote of no confidence in "our" "leaders."
