Based off the notes i took and looking at the numbers over and over, I have come to the conclusion that the election between G.W. Bush and Al Gore was not legitimate. If they did a recount in all the counties in Florida and finished on time then it would have easily shown that Al Gore was the true winner and should have been president of the United States.
