For those that are disheartened by the ‘overwhelming’ victory by Obama last night
Obama won popular vote over Romney by about 2,650,000 out of nearly 118,000,000
In other words, a swap in vote by only 1 out of every 90 voters would have caused a tie vote
I never understand why anything under 60-40 is considered a landslide - since 1 out 10 changing sides leads to 50-50. Instead we look at 53-47 and “OMG he killed it, landslide, etc”
Second number 218,000,000 ELIGIBLE voters and 100,000,000 can’t bother to even vote???
What do you think is the best way to change this in the future?
