Super Tuesday – Total Number of Votes

I thought this was interesting:

Here are the numbers just for the 19 states where both parties had elections yesterday

Obama/Clinton voters: 14,460,149
McCain/Romney/Huckabee voters: 8,367,694

Or, 73% more Democratic voters than Republican voters.

A lot of this is huge Democratic numbers in New York and California.

    Surely Texas will help even this out 🙂

    Also, if McCain is running away with it there is no reason to vote.

    hmmm, that’s some interesting math. There’s nothing quite like twisting the stats to suit your purposes. Normally you do the comparison based on the whole sample not by comparing the larger sample to the smaller one.

    Remember what someone said “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.” (I say someone because no one can seem to agree on who said it.)
