View Diary: Mitt Romney '47 percent' watch: 47.53 (62 comments)

  •  5.497% (0+ / 0-)

    Colorado is still shy of being rounded up to 6% at 5.497%.  It's not valid to round that to 5.5% and then round 5.5% up to 6%.

    •  I looked at it by rounding each candidate's (0+ / 0-)

      share of the vote to two decimal points rather than the actual margin.  Your way is more accurate, but in reality, when someone has less than 46.5% the natural tendency is to round it to 46% and when the other candidate has 51.8% the tendency is to round to 52%.  

      Alternative rock with something to say:
