2. Based on what data? Link? I call bullshit.

My guess is the actual number would be in the 70-90 range.

I heard numbers like 75%-O, 25%-R

10. I think you are misinterpreting the data.

The result turned out to be an unbeatable combination: virtually universal support from black voters, who turned out as strongly as in 2008, plus decisive backing from members of the younger and fast-growing Latino and Asian American communities, who chose Obama over Romney by ratios of roughly 3 to 1. All of those groups contributed to Obama's majority among women. (Gay voters, a far smaller group, went for Obama by a 54-point margin .)

Here I'll help.

If 54% (your interpretation) voted for Obama, then 46 voted for somebody else. 54-46 =8.
But instead the difference "the margin" is 54. X - Y = 54. X + Y = 100.

X = 54 + Y.
54 + 2Y = 100.
2Y = 46.
Y = 23.
X = 77.

11. Yes. The gay D votes beat the gay R votes by 54 percentage points.

14. So 77% voted D?

That makes more sense. I was really gonna be upset if it was 54%.

13. Read up on what 'margin' means.

This post makes you look dense.

18. I only wrote my post because I was worried. We work very hard here to keep gay marriage. Yes, I

am one of the people who stomp "Steve King's" area for support, because people know me. Even though they (my neighbors) pray in Church for my soul. It's is a small rural area with a lot guns. I still walk for support for every ballot measure and election with my head up.

So ya, my eyes can bear the truth... In fact, I welcome it.

You didn't have to be mean about it.
