UC Berkeley - Smoke Alarms ring on FL election patterns

Correction -- UC Berkeley: "n the news release, 'UC Berkeley Research Team Sounds 'Smoke Alarm' for Florida E-Vote Count,' issued yesterday, Nov. 18 over PR Newswire, we are advised of changes to the second graph. The graph should read: 'The three counties where the voting anomalies were most prevalent were also the most heavily Democratic: Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade, respectively. Statistical patterns in counties that did not have e-touch voting machines predict a 13,000 vote decrease in President Bush's support in Broward County; machines tallied an increase of 59,000 votes - a net gain of 72,000 for the incumbent. President Bush should have gained only 17,000 votes in Palm Beach County, but instead gained 57,000 - a difference of 40,000 votes. He should have gained only 29,000 votes in Miami-Dade County but saw a gain of 44,000 - a difference of 15,000 votes.'"
