Link, please.

Kaa

Here is the summary of the results, as reported by the Washington Post. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A12623-2001Nov11.html)

They concluded that the only scenarios which would have given Bush the win would be (1) an incomplete recount or (2) no recount at all.


...if Gore had found a way to trigger a statewide recount of all disputed ballots, or if the courts had required it, the result likely would have been different. An examination of uncounted ballots throughout Florida found enough where voter intent was clear to give Gore the narrowest of margins.



...the study also found that whether dimples are counted or amore restrictive standard is used, a statewide tally favored Gore by 60 to 171 votes.

It should be noted that Gore did, in fact, request a state-wide recount, however Bush refused to support that.
