Ohio Fractions Project Updated

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/elections/live_results/house/

12 out of 16 Ohio House seats went Republican.  Ohio was 50/50 between Romney and Obama approximately.

Assume the only crossovers are GOP voting Obama.

(Amazing, I thought we were all racist)

Anyhow, 3/4 of state was GOP, and 1/4 of all voters were GOP crossovers.

What percentage of GOP voters were crossovers?

We take 1/4 over 3/4 to get 1/3.

So we learn fractions.
