15. that is actually a rational number

irrational decimals go on forever without a repetitive pattern. His percent would have to be rational (the number of votes he got / the total number of voters) * 100. Since both his vote number and the total are integers that is by definition a rational number.

16. Yeah, I get that part. I was referring to the 47% part of the post... n/t

I incorrectly thought if Mittens got 47% our guy would get 53%... I now know better...

13. I hate to lose the 47.47% but as long as it keeps dropping it's all good.
