Something else costs the popular vote too and probably even more so -- all those uncounted absentee ballots in states where the election outcome would not have changed. They were not counted along with a lot of military ballots that were not counted. I called the OK Election Board and found out that Oklahoma was one of the few states that counted all ballots including absentee and military even if they made no difference in the outcome of the race!
Since the majority of absentee ballots usually go Republican it is a safe bet that those 1 million plus absentee ballots in CA and other places would have given Pres Bush the popular vote.

If Nevadans had not been lied to about the transportation and storage of Nuclear wastes by candidate Bush, Nevada possibly would have gone Gore, GW would have lost. He lied when he said science would decide the fate of Nuclear wastes, not politics. Well the stuff is going to Nevada, with no change in the science, he will not win Nevada again. I don't know what difference it will make in 04, but it will make some.
