  •  thanks (0+ / 0-)

    See my above comment on the voters, though.  Using data from the link you provided, I calculated 53.5% of 2004 voters.  But maybe I did something wrong.

    Undecided, due to abundance of good choices. Interestingly, I've never heard a Republican say that.

    •  You can't use the population stat (0+ / 0-)

      to determine numbers of registered voters and numbers of actual voters. Those are different stats from different sources, right?

      •  I'm not quite sure (0+ / 0-)

        What you're asking.  I was going by the Rutgers data to which you linked.  The footnote says that their voter data comes from the U.S. Census annual survey, which I believe is the same source they use for their annual population estimates.  So it does appear to be the same source.  But maybe I misunderstood your question.

        Anyhow, I should mention that it's a great diary overall.  I get a bit finicky about numbers -- but I really don't mean to detract from your message about underrepresentation of women in the debate questions.  Some of the other posters have posited plausible explanations (what was the submission ratio?) -- but it's an important topic to bring up.
