Pat Bucanhan got 10,000 votes in palm Beach County from the Butterfly ballot and he had never set foot in palm beach county to campaign, and never spent a dime in the county advertising for his campaign. Those were All Gore votes from Florida citizens that thought they were voting for him but the Butterfly ballot caused total confusion.
Butterfly ballots have been banned in Florida since then.
The will of the Florida people who voted, was for Gore, over Bush.....but since there was no way to correct the messed up ballot after the fact, those votes never made it to the count, for the guy these citizens voted for.... All Gore.
So, yeah....Bush won, on a couple of technicalities, at best! But such is life, ya win some, and lose some, and always pass the wand, with a smile.... (Unless you're trump).
