A graphic in the NY Times purports to explain “all” of how the Democratic presidential nominating race has gone to date. Well, not really…
I know itâ€™s hard work, but it would be nice if the reporters who put stuff like this together would use politically relevant units for their analysis.
Counties, with their vast variation in population, tell you nothing.
Delegates are apportioned (mostly) in congressional districts by (mostly) proportional representation.
So, while it is interesting, itâ€™s also rather beside the point how many counties in which someone has â€œwonâ€ the most votes.
