Not really rigged, just ridiculously stolen. He may have legitimately won, but we'll never know

Well, not really rigged, I mean, no one stuffed the ballot box. But stolen by Bush. If a full recount had been done, Bush may have won anyway, we'll never know

It was poorly phrased.

One state. Florida.

Removal of voters from rolls? Media manipulation? Revelations that in all scenarios a recount would give Gore the win?

Re: Was the US Election 2000 rigged?

on US elections (i am not a US citizen so shoot me down )

each state is weighted by electoral college votes, if you win each individual state you win its votes. Florida, a large state, has a lot of votes, and therefore is very important to the electoral outcome. Especially considering it is seen as a "swing state".
