No. Gore only got lucky due to the DUI. He was done otherwise.

If he wasn't a godawful campaigner, yes. On the other hand, WV and TN should be >50% for Gore, and maybe give Gore Virginia and maybe Colorado for Bush.

Yeah. Gore would have got a Clinton-like win wasn't he such a poor campaigner.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Gore would have gotten that map had he decided to not distance himself from Clinton. He would have gotten a map like the OP if he'd decided to run as Clinton minus the scandals.
