A QUESTION ABOUT CHARLOTTE AND STADIUM MATH FROM A READER:
Math still seems to be the Dems’ big enemy.
Obama’s people are claiming that there was no problem w/ filling Bank of America stadium, and that the shift is TOTALLY b/c of weather.
In fact, they’re claiming, they had NINETEEN THOUSAND on a wait-list to get in.
Is this credible?
Bank of America stadium capacity = 71K
Wait list (can’t get in) = 19K
New venue capacity = 22K
That means that there are 68 THOUSAND disappointed people for tonight. That they had 90 THOUSAND people ready to fill BoA stadium. For a city of 750K, that’s almost 10 PERCENT of the population disappointed, and over 10 percent waiting to get in?
Why bus in people (and where are they now?)? Why give away tix at bars? Most of all, where are all these people going to be tonight??
Where are the fact-checkers on this?
Er, in the tank?
