|I recently overheard the following conversation: X: 'Obama won a solid victory. The people have made their views clear. They stand with the Democratic Party.' Y: 'Not so fast. Remember that the Republicans won a big margin in the House of Representatives. It's really a split-decision.' This is interesting. How could the Republicans have won 55 percent of the House seats at the same time that Mitt Romney received only 48 percent of the popular vote? Did that many people split their vote? It turns out the answer is 'no.'|
