23. I'm not following your math.

In 2008, after building a 170,000 vote lead in the early voting, President Obama held on to win by the narrowest of margins -- 14,000 votes. The final total was 2,142,651 to 2,128,474.

How do your numbers translate a smaller margin in early voting into an election day victory by a margin that is 7 times as great as the margin four years ago?
