Promising Poll Numbers

My fellow Virginians, check out these poll numbers:


That pie chart says that only 56% of you are aware of comments I made to my opponent's Indian volunteer.


And this one says that only 2/3 of those familiar with my comments consider them inappropriate. And what's two-thirds of 56%?

Thirty-seven point five percent. My friends, that's a minority opinion. It's a "them" opinion. I encourage the remaining 62.5% of you to put this little blip behind you and return a proud American with real American values to the U.S. Senate.

Yours in confederacy,

George Felix Allen

56 of the members of the Senate arrive for a session. 37 of those present vote 'aye' on a bill, 16 vote 'nay', and 3 abstain. Does the bill pass?

No, really, I'm curious. I am a visitor to your fair country and am curious as to the workings of your arcane legislative system.

Interesting logic.

I suppose that explains how the GOP determines that tax cuts for the wealthy are good for the poor.

That is absolutely crazy math. You have assumed that those who are unaware of the comment would, when apprised of the comment, think it is not inappropriate. What is that assumption based on?

Let's then assume that those who are unfamiliar would, when brought up to speed with the comment, reply in the same proportion of yes/nos as those who are familiar. I.e., 2/3 of 44% is roughly another 29% that would believe it's in appropriate. So: 37.5% + 29% = 57.5%. This suggests a majority of people, when fully apprised of the facts, would consider the comments inappropriate.

Hold it right there! Remember what happens when we assume? How it makes an ass out of you and me?

You forget that many of my most faithful supporters aren't very big fans of watching the news, or newspapers, or internet news. The people who said they are "unfamiliar" with the controversy--those people are my base.


Best,

Hold on there felix! thank you for pointing out you've made and ass out of you and me. You have ASSUMED that those who are unfamiliar are your supporters, as this is not based in fact. Based on that, you have ASSUMED that your supporters would automatically consider it appropriate. One might support you and still consider it inappropriate.

I urge my supporters to ignore the mathematician's fuzzy math. He is clearly only interested in numbers games, and the politics of partisanship and class warfare.

You started the fuzzy math, there, Felix. I would urge your supporters to consider the source of the fuzzy math.
