Political Math is written by an individual with far too much free time on his hands. This blog is primarily a suppliment to the YouTube channel 10000Pennies, which shows data visualizations on political topics.
The problem with the videos is that, if every tiny calculation were shown in the videos, they would be boring. However, I don’t want it to look like I’m trying to hide the data. The beauty of what I do is that the data is free for anyone to look at… the only problem is that only a few people really look at it and even fewer people understand it. So this blog is in place to get into the details for those who are either curious or skeptical.
As for me (this is an “About” page, after all), I’m an exceptionally unimportant person. I have a very normal job in a very normal city. I’m not looking for fame or a fight. I just know that we live in a world filled with numbers and I want to help people understand what those numbers mean.
