Perfect Ratio?

The length some in the media go to dig at Congressman Steve King is ridiculous and the scientific community is united in that fact.

Report-err Bret Hayworth authored this story for the Sioux City Journal

Ratio of Democrats in 4th congressional district increases

Hayworth notes - Iowa Secretary of State voter rolls for November indicate the district has 129,959 registered Democrats and 177,942 registered Republicans. The district had 131,917 registered Democrats and 182,313 registered Republicans in November 2012, when King defeated Democrat Christie Vilsack. 

That means the Republican margin over Democrats over the last year has fallen from 50,396 to 47,983.There are 176,318 voters registered with no party preference.


The data from the Secretary of State's office lists:

177,942 active Republicans

126,959 active Democrats

176,138 active No Party

Which means the Republican margin over Democrats is 50,983 not 47,983 and Democrats lost 4,958 registered voters to 4,371 registered Republicans.

I e-mailed Mr. Hayworth that I look forward to the correction of this non story.
