A statewide recount could have produced enough votes to tilt the election [Gore’s] way, no matter what standard was chosen to judge voter intent. If all the ballots had been reviewed under any of seven single standards, and combined with the results of an examination of overvotes, Mr. Gore would have won, by a very narrow margin. For example, using the most permissive "dimpled chad" standard, nearly 25,000 additional votes would have been reaped, yielding 644 net new votes for Mr. Gore and giving him a 107-vote victory margin. Using the most restrictive standard — the fully punched ballot card — 5,252 new votes would have been added to the Florida total, producing a net gain of 652 votes for Mr. Gore, and a 115-vote victory margin.

I looked for Consortium Recount Analysis, but couldn't find any organization by that name. I'm giving you LIBERAL sources that say Bush won, Here's CNN, hardly a conservative organization: http://articles.cnn.com/2001-04-04/politics/florida.recount.01_1_ballots-without-presidential-votes-undercounted-ballots-miami-herald-and-usa?_s=PM:ALLPOLITICS

Uh, Bill-O, you're typically predictable. Deciding based on the source over the data exposes you as the "fact hater".

You might try reading before deciding what you "know" (not that I expect you will - too dumb). The Times was simply reporting the result of the Consortium Recount Analysis.

You jut tell yourself that you "won". That's all that matters...

Silly person. You're quoting the NY Times? How about all the newspapers in FLORIDA, even the liberal ones, that conducted recounts and found that Bush won? You libs really hate facts, don't you?
