Doing a little rounding magic, this election proved who the Poster Boy for the 47% this election year was - MITT ROMNEY!
To wit Romney's vote total in the following states:
Colorado - 47%
Iowa - 47%
Nevada - 47%
New Hampshire - 47%
Pennsylvania - 47%
Virginia - 47%
Wisconsin - 47%
Amazingly, ALL of the above states were amongst the most contested "swing states", and Romney didn't hit 48% in ANY of them. And, in the biggie, Ohio? 48.2%!
One final stat. The Gender Gap. Wanna know what percent of the vote were cast by Romney's strong suit (MEN)? 47%
And, Romney is, with a bit of rounding magic, at just about 47% in the NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE to boot - ain't irony a b!tch?!
