The outcome of the year 2000 presidential election was determined in Florida amid much controversy. The main race was between George W. Bush and Al Gore, but a minor candidate, Pat Buchanan, played a significant role. The so-called “butterfly ballot”, used only in Palm Beach County, played a major role in the controversy surrounding the election. It has been claimed that the format of this ballot confused voters so that some who intended to vote for the Democrat, Al Gore, punched the wrong hole next to his name and, as a result, voted for Buchanan. This Excel file shows the original vote totals by Florida county for Gore, Bush, and Buchanan as of November 8, 2000 (these data reflect the results prior to the hand recount that was done due to other problems with the election [e.g., the “hanging chad” problem]). Question 1. Use the county-by-county results, excluding Palm Beach County, in the Excel file to find the slope and intercept of the least squares prediction line , where x is the number of votes received by Gore and y is the number of votes received by Buchanan. Remember, exclude Palm Beach County when determining the slope and intercept (Palm Beach County is at the bottom of the data columns for convenience)
