26. Because they aren't in my hypothetical scenario.
I know the percentages don't add up to 100%, but lets say that the rest are people who wrote in "Weed Man" or "Mary Carey" or "Howard Dean" or "Ba Ba Booey" or one of two thousand other candidates without any one of them gaining more than .01% of the vote.
