    He wouldn't know what it meant.

    Also:
    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/11/07/fox-news-exit-poll-summary/

    Read how it pretends to be neutral, then slips in gems like:
    Obama’s victory comes despite voter dissatisfaction with how things are going in the country, mediocre economic ratings and a majority opposing his health care plan.

    I really wish they had comments. Not to read, just to post :D
    over and over and over.

    Holy shit

    I'm looking at it now

    He got every state right? Damn.

    EDIT: And the margin of the popular vote, wow.

    Seeing shit like that makes me want to become a statistician.

    Maybe this will be the beginning of actual statistics in politics, so that crazy people can stop pretending like they matter and convincing enough people that their shit is relevant on any kind of scale and we can all settle the fuck down.

    My 85-year-old grandmother, who has voted straight-ticket Republican in every election since she hit 18, and even worked on Republican campaigns, voted for Obama. And it came down to health care.

    Obamacare gave my previously-uninsurable sister the chance to have coverage for the first time in a decade. That shit matters to people on a really personal level, which is something that the GOP doesn't quite seem to grasp. Or didn't, anyway. Who knows where they're gonna go from here.

    I was giving a barebones summary of the Puerto Rico situation to a coworker just now

    He said, "Oh, so we'd have 53 states?"

    This grown-ass man thought there were 52 states

    To be fair I can understand the guy being a bit miffed, because the guy teasing him went "haha Obama won!"

    But then he said "I know he's not been the best president but -"

    And got cut off with "HE'S BEEN A TERRIBLE PRESIDENT! DO YOU THINK OBAMACARE WILL ACTUALLY WORK?!?"

    And that's why we don't talk about these things at work.

    Oh yeah totally

    I didn't make a peep!

    This is also the response my lady gave me when I told her about Puerto Rico. I laughed and then I told her kind of condescendingly that there are only 51 states.

    Hi, I helped decide who should be president of the United States today.
