Common Core Math for Communists

Teacher:

Johnny, if President Trump has 55% of the vote in a state’s election, how many votes does Joe Biden need in order to win.

Johnny:

I would need to know how many votes have been counted and how many are left to be counted.

Teacher:

Slow boy, let me rephrase the question, Joe Biden would need 47,323 votes to win and the number of votes left to be counted is “fluid”.

Johnny:

But wouldn’t President Trump also be gaining some votes from the mail-in ballots?

Teacher:

No.

Johnny:

That is not possible statistically.

Teacher:

(to the rest of the class) It appears that Johnny is unable to do simple math. The correct answer is actually independent of counting the votes, it is only dependent on how much time it requires to mark and submit the number of ballots required to win.

I would caution you about spending time around Johnny as it may reflect badly on your social media score. Johnny, please report to the vice-principal for detention.
