    As for the 'two man' comment, there have been numerous primary elections where less that 43% won the election... and anyway, if you really want to count a race as 3 man when the 3rd gets less than 2-3% of the vote, then I feel sorry for you.

    FairVote - Non-majority Winners in US Elections
    We have assembled a great deal of information about the frequency and impact of American primary and general elections won with less than 50% of the vote. The great majority of American states have had governors who have won elections with less than 50% of the vote since 1990. In the presidential elections since 1988, every state except Arkansas, at least once, awarded all of their electoral votes to a candidate who was opposed by most voters in that state. A significant number of congressional seats were won by mere pluralities. Read the overview to our report.
    Sorted By Winning Percentage

    35.0-39.9%

    State Year Winner Winning %
    Maine 1994 Angus King 35.0%
    Connecticut 1994 John Rowland 36.0%
    Hawaii 1994 Benjamin Cayetano 37.0%
    Minnesota 1998 Jesse Ventura 37.0%
    Utah 1956 George D. Clyde 38.2%
    Alaska 1990 Walter J. Hickel 39.0%
    Alaska 1978 Jay S. Hammond 39.1%
    Maine 1974 James B. Longley 39.1%
    Arizona 1986 Evan Mecham 39.7%
    Maine 1986 John R. McKernan Jr. 39.9%

    40.0-44.9%

    State Year Winner Winning %
    Connecticut 1990 Lowell P. Weicker, Jr. 40.0%

    Re: Christie favorables are dropping

    Which words do you not comprehend in this statement?

    The fact is a simple one: in a two person race - 43% loses each and every time.

    If it is only a two person race and one candidate gets 43% please tell us how much the other lone candidate must have gotten. Do the math. Use pencil and paper and do it the olod fashioned way. Use a fancy calculator. Use your computer. Place 100 pennies on your desk and put 43 in one pile and now count how many are in the other pile. I don't care how you do it. Just do it and have the decency to man up and admit you blew it.

    Your attack on me was brought on by hatred and vitriol and even now when the facts have been laid before you and anyone can see you were WRONG, you still refuse to man up with any sense of decency because I am the hated enemy.

    and anyway, if you really want to count a race as 3 man when the 3rd gets less than 2-3% of the vote, then I feel sorry for you.
    Are you serious?!?!?!?! You do not know the difference between 2 and 3? Get real and man up for heavens sakes.

    you keep whining about an attack where there was none.

    MODS... PLEASE review the post in question, and determine if I 'attacked' Hay.

    We'll wait.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ............



    Hay appears to have never heard of write in votes or non of the above votes. Pity. I had such hopes for him.

    Some people can't seem to get the correct answer with all those things.

    Re: Christie favorables are dropping

    Perhaps math is not your strong suit.

    my statement of indisputable fact

    The fact is a simple one: in a two person race - 43% loses each and every time.

    So the total amount of voter is 100%. Now take 100 pennies and place them on a table. In a two candidate race, the votes go to the two candidates. Place 43 pennies in one pile and count the remaining pennies and place them in a different pile. I am willing to bet you a new car that you end up with 57 pennies. 57 beats 43 every time.

    And that also applies to a two person race where your boy Walker runs and gets the same percentage... 43% ... that he scored in the latest poll.

    But please do present your math.

    Or you can call me a liar again for daring to say that the fact is a simple one: in a two person race - 43% loses each and every time.

    Tell us again how you can subtract 43 from 100 and get less than 43?
