Whats the deal with everyone trying to win by 200 votes?!

The result is within the error bar, systematic and statistical.

If I told you the foot rule measured my table ad 59.83579 cm you
would laugh at me.

Every election is measured by a device: a human, a punch card machine, a
lever throwing machine...all devices have least count errors.

Isnt this election within the error(which CAN be empirically measured
by taking a balanced set of 10-100 thousand ballots and running them through)

So shouldnt Florida be declared a tie and removed from the electoral college.
And New Mexico too..and perhaps some of Iowa, wisconsin, and Oregon??
