Re: Do you think the 2000 election (Bush vs Gore) was fixed?
Bush used the law to win.
Better lawyers, louder voices.
Gore lost because he didn't have the hook-up in Florida like Bush did (Katherine Harris etc...), and as long as Florida remains a tax haven it will have its share of hardcore right wing people in powerful civil service positions keeping it that way, and those people will help the Republicans any way they can.
Florida is a swing state too so this bodes well for the right.
