The Numbers, The Noise

66,882,230 people voted for Barack Obama (365 electoral votes).
58,343,671 people voted for John McCain (173 electoral votes).

10,000 people, 200 per state, represent .008% of the voting population in 2008, and can get considerable more air time at town halls because we Americans love the train wreck.

Age 18-24. Obama 66%, McCain 32% (10% of vote total)
Age 25-29. Obama 66%, McCain 31% (8% of vote total)
Age 30-39. Obama 54%, McCain 44% (18% of vote total)
Age 40-49. Obama 49%, McCain 49% (21% of vote total)
Age 50-64. Obama 50%, McCain 49% (27% of vote total)
65 and over. Obama 45%, McCain 53% (16% of vote total)

No wonder pull the plug on Grandma gets so much attention.

Mid term elections are dominated by 50+ voters. Keep the hope alive, try and drown out the noise.
