Putting the Florida Controversy to Rest

November 28th, 2004, 6:00am by Sam Wang

I am moving my post-election comments on Florida here. This is partly to maintain order and partly because I am starting to wonder whether there is a story here. After chewing over the Berkeley group’s analysis and corresponding with some of you, I have thought of reasons why there is no real county-level anomaly. The essential problem is that the largest e-voting counties have large populations and have no counterpart for comparison. I believe that this problem is insurmountable by any statistical analysis, no matter how sophisticated.
