Re: Unlikely Praise

The perfect post Pod is praisingly pointing to (ahhh alliteration, you’ll never let me down) reads:

AND YOU THOUGHT SHE WAS PULLING AHEAD:

Today’s The Hill reports that 50 percent of adults would not vote for Hillary Clinton. Lucky for Clinton, most adults don’t vote.

Sacha Zimmerman

Me: One thought: While it’s true that most adults don’t vote, I’m curious if this as “lucky” for Clinton as Zimmerman thinks it is. I honestly don’t know the answer, but it seems to me less than obvious that the non-voters break wildly anti-Hillary. In other words, when election time comes is it really true that in a country where half of all adults wouldn’t vote for Hillary that a majority of the fraction of adults who do vote would vote for her? I’m sure that could be said more clearly, but you get me.

Update: Zoiks, I think I under-read the sarcasm of the original post.
