200K Didn't Vote in Florida Because of Lines

Remember the analysis that found that long lines cost nearly 50,000 votes in Central Florida? Well, the Orlando Sentinel reports that if you extend that to the whole state, it's more than 201,000.

"Analyzing data compiled by the Orlando Sentinel, Ohio State University professor Theodore Allen estimated last week that at least 201,000 voters likely gave up in frustration on Nov. 6, based on research Allen has been doing on voter behavior. His preliminary conclusion was based on the Sentinel's analysis of voter patterns and precinct-closing times in Florida's 25 largest counties, home to 86 percent of the state's 11.9 million registered voters."
