I guess I'm a rare breed - I chose 80-20. That's a 4 to 1 split. I'm not impressed by 2-1 or 3-1. That percentage split could narrow significantly in a relatively short amount of time. For me, an overwhelming majority is one that would be 80-20 or greater, because you're talking about getting close to unanimous agreement.
Once you start getting into the 65-35, 60-40 range, you're really talking about issues that could go either way. Death penalty, is water boarding torture (what how is that not 99-1??), should we allow gays to marry, etc. Examples of topics that have an overwhelming majority:
1) Do you support the troops?
2) Is cancer bad?
3) Is there a God?
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
In American elections, the term "landslide" in terms of popular vote is normally when you win by at least 10 percentage points?
