Description

Votes for Geroge Bush and Pat Buchanan in Florida counties for the 2000 U.S. presidential election

Format

A dataset with 67 observations on the following 3 variables.

County Name of the Florida county
Buchanan Number of votes for Par Buchanan
Bush number of votes for George Bush

Details

The race for the presidency of the United States in the fall of 2000 was very close, with the electoral votes from Florida determining the outcome. In the disputed final tally in Florida, George W. Bush won by just 537 votes over Al Gore, out of almost 6 million votes cast. About 2.3 were awarded to other candidates. One of those other candidates was Pat Buchanan, who did much better in Palm Beach County than he did anywhere else. Palm Beach County used a unique "butterfly ballot" that had candidate names on either side of the page with "chads" to be punched in the middle. This non-standard ballot seemed to confuse some voters, who punched votes for Buchanan that may have been intended for a different candidate. This dataset shows the number of votes for Bush and Buchanan in each Florida county.
