Math Skillz Demonstrating Small Minority Saddles AZ with McCain... Again

I have heard repeatedly in local news reports that voter turnout in AZ was about 25%.  501,054 people voted in the Republican Primary this week.  281, 418 of them cast a vote for John McCain.  If 501, 054 was 25% of those who could have voted in the Republican Primary, then 2,004,216 people could have voted.  The 281, 418 who voted for McCain represent 14% of the people who could have voted.  And that is an even smaller percentage of the people who could have registered and voted.  So, once again, a very small minority saddles us with McCain.
