#2136: Election Commentary
[Cueball is presenting a graphic on his left that shows two names followed by five digits]
Cueball: Smith is leading in 3 of the 5 digits, and is tied in another. But Jones has a solid lead the thousands place, if Smith can’t catch up there, it’s over.
Smith: 5 5 3 8 4
Jones: 5 9 1 0 2
[In each column, the higher number is marked with a check mark and the lower with a cross and greyed out. The fives in the leftmost column are marked “tie”]
[Caption below the panel:]
A lot of election commentary just consists of unnecessarily convoluted ways to add up who has more votes.
