The three broadcast networks called Florida for Gore while the polls in the panhandle were still open. Jeb advised W to wait for tabulations before conceding. Around 2 AM Gore called W to concede. Later Gore withdrew his concession and demanded a selective recount.

Networks have adopted the practice of waiting until all polls in a state close before issuing a projection. The early call of Florida for Gore probably cost Bush votes as some voters declined to cast ballots because the race was thought to be over.

Like I said before, if Trump loses that close this November, do you think he will challenge it....?

Hell, his ilk thinks any loss would be a fixed election from the get go....
Hmm... Tales of thousands of spoiled Democrat designed butterfly ballots are news to me. You have a link? People claimed they were confused by the ballots design and mistakenly voted for Pat Buchanan but in typical fashion when the election doesn't go their way Democrats wanted a "re vote" for post election ballot box stuffing.

Gore had every right to demand a recount but he chose the sleazy tactic of limiting it to hand picked counties where he thought he could generate enough pregnant Chad's and the like to win. If the Democrats were interested in finding the Florida results they would have demanded a statewide recount. Their strategy of only recounting selected counties reveals their ends justify the means motivation.

It appears that Salty likes to remember things the way she would have liked them to have happened. Reality is just a different construct in her mind.

I agree except that it cost Bush votes. Polls were closed by the time it was called.

they did; in fact it was a state law they do a complete recount if a national vote was 1% or closer. bush took it to court. at some point it became moot and another court decided we must have a president. so counting was stopped in those districts.
The over all recount had been stopped right away by bush lawyers.

It's just that Salty prefers news over fake and Salty listened to the results as they were called. I don't depend on hearsay if I can help it.

Then either your memory is seriously flawed or you are presenting lies. The Associated Press called the race for Gore a 7:50 pm on Nov 7, 2000. The other major networks repeated that call in the next 10 mins.

https://uselectionatlas.org/INFORMAT...00timeline.php

The polls in Florida closed at 7:00 local time. The networks all went on air telling people that the polls would close that night at 7:00 eastern. However, there are 10 panhandle counties in Florida where the polls did not close until 7:00 CENTRAL TIME. So for an hour, all of the major news networks were telling people that the polls were closing while in the panhandle, they still had an hour to vote.

This had a big effect on the vote totals that night and especially in the Panhandle that is pretty reliably Republican leaning.

Quote:
We had the usual rush in the early morning, at noon and right after work. There was a significant drop in voters after 6:00. The last 40 minutes was almost empty. The poll workers were wondering if there had been a national disaster they didnít know about. It was my observation that this decline in voters between 6:00 and 7:00 was very different when compared to previous elections. The last 30 minutes was particularly empty. There is usually a line after the poll closes. In this election there was no one.

So once again, either your memory has failed you or you are just plain lying.

To be honest, a split vote is very unlikely. However, we don't need one because, no matter the outcome, there will be blood.
