Two new independent counts of the votes in Florida have shown that had recounts been allowed to continue, George Bush would not have won the state.
The Palm Beach Post counted all so called 'undervotes' which was where a ballot did not have a hole in it, but was clearly marked in some way. Gore gained 652 votes from these.
The Washington Post also found that 'overvotes' would have given Gore another 45,000 votes had they been included. However there can be no court proceedings now because of the Supreme Court ruling not allowing recounts.
