Funny thing about the Kyodo polling reports whose numbers I posted yesterday. If you actually add up the numbers in the article, the various shares of the vote add up to 109.5%.
Someone somewhere is unclear on the concept of "share of the total vote" -- and it is probably me.
Now if the percentage of the electorate that is undecided is 30.3% -- then the numbers add up.
Otherwise, not so much.
(Yes, I know the other column is wrong too).
Later - The Lawyer guesses that the figure is an epic typographical error on Kyodo's part, that the number of undecided voters is not 39.8% but 29.8%.
The Lawyer is almost certainly correct.
Now how to fix the second column, which still adds up to 103.5%...
