Simple Math

All my readers know I hate math, right? But even I can tell the difference between these numbers.

132 million people voted in 2008 -- the election President Obama won.

In the recent 2010 midterm elections, approximately 82 million people voted.

Pundits can pronounce all the guesses they care to make. I don’t contest the numbers nor will I try to belittle the significance of the Republican’s win. This is the way our system works.

But at least 50 million people that “spoke” last time didn’t speak this time. Just something to keep in mind when people are trying to tell you what the country was saying.
