I heard Rachel Maddow yesterday again get it wrong about New York's 26th District Congressional race. (link here). She kept going on and one about how this "deep deep red district" turned Democratic following Paul Ryan's attempt to kill medicare. No Rachel, it was a three way race. And if you take all the votes from the Republican, and all the votes from the nut job tea party candidate, and combine them, then the Democrat, Kathy Hochul would have lost, and lost big. (link sadly here to the Rev Sun Young Moon's rag, but I am hungry and in a hurry as I post this).
Mrs. Hochul had 48,530 votes (47 percent)
Mrs. Corwin‘s 43,836 votes (43 percent)
Mr. Davis‘ 9,495 votes (9 percent)
47 + 9 = 56, the last time I checked. And 56 > > 47
(with " > > " meaning "much much greater than")
Continue to get this wrong in the future, and watch not only your ratings fall, but the Senate and White House fall into the hands of the do-nothing Republicans as well.
