    Re: Re: Obama has bought his votes....Ye


    lol - all percentages of votes cast HAVE to equal 100% when added together or you've not accounted correctly. Need some remedial math VT? When I split a whole item into parts, and then express them by percentages the percentage numbers assigned to all the parts must add to 100%.

    I can't make it any easier on you Vt - have fun now.........
