The lack of what should be a 3rd grade understanding of arithmetic and probability by the great majority of Americans shouldn’t be astounding. Yet, another election season and I am again gobsmacked.

@fncll true. Still had someone today announce some huge number of points of a lead.

"National, right?" Affirmative nod. "Doesn't matter. Those numbers are completely skewed by deep blue states."

Day before election and still having to explain the insanity that the popular vote doesn't mean anything in the USA.

Won't even dare attempt explaining "Margin of error"
