72. I'm sure it's me...
Ever have one of those situations where 2 equations come to different conclusions, but both look right. I'm having one right now.

I must be simplifying too much....but to me, 3.27% of 13660 is 447.

I was looking for how many respondents would need to be oversampled (or give a wrong answer) in order to make the poll 4 million off.
I wasn't looking for a comparison to the 13047 number (but I certainly understand what you are saying about the final 613).

I'm not questioning your math, I'm trying to find my error.

Feel free to say 'I'm not here to teach you basic math, ya dumbass' 8)
