80. No, I'm not
The numbers are way large enough to do inferential statistics provided the assumptions of the statistics are met. Where the numbers are sometimes too small is at precinct level.

Regarding the total numbers: it was not clear to me from your post what you thought; what you said was "as far as the 1250 precincts representative precincts are concerned, they are in five groups which sum to 121 million", and this, of course is not literally true. So I just thought the actual numbers might be useful to anyone reading your post.
