Think Anew, Act Anew

observations and opinion

The Margin of Victory

There are about 240 million Americans of voting age. Perhaps 60 percent (144 million) will vote. Around 5% (7.2 million) are still undecided.

But the ones who matter are in swing states making up, at best, 10 percent of the population. Which means that 720,000 people will decide the election. Or more accurately, half that number: 360,001.

Which means theoretically, 1 person decides. Let’s hope s/he’s not an idiot.
