On the Republican ballot in South Carolina, the media declares it a close contest with McCain garnering 33% of the vote and Huckabee 30%. However, on the metric that actually matters, convention delegates, McCain got 19 delegates and Huckabee only 5. What appears at first to be a 10% difference is nearly a 300% difference.

Journalists: lazily reporting elections for at least half a century.
