10. Did Rush Holt win by one vote? Or tie?

How many congressional elections in the past century have been decided by fewer than 10 votes, let alone. If what I said, that your one vote will not matter, is bull shit give me one example of an election decided by one vote. Then tell me how many electoral races have there been? I think there are 500,000 elected officials in the US, 500,000 elections per year. So if you can find one election decided by one vote then to get the probability divide it by say the ten million elections in the past twenty years. Everyone here will vote. I will crawl over broken glass to vote for Joe Biden. But some calculator in my head knows that I am not motivated by the real probability of changing an electoral outcome.

I know I am not supposed to say that. I told my wife you hate me for posting that, donít you. She said no. She is lying. But what I said was not bullshit.
