Jensaarai: coeyagi: I might have to sit this one out.3 posts later...--------------------------LordOfThePings: Maybe NASCAR is attracting more new fans who are Democrats, rather than Obama attracting more new supporters who like NASCAR.Most likely.Here are the basic demographics for NASCAR fans as of 2009-2010. (PDF)It's been the demographics of who is a NASCAR fan that has been changing over time. That's going to come with incidental effects like this that break brains.
StoneColdAtheist: Dr Dreidel: StoneColdAtheist: When I was stationed in Altus, Oklahoma, some of my neighbors were part of a big crown of local Nascar fans that caravaned the 700 miles to Talladega, Alabama twice a year for the races. They were die-hard.So a statistically small group of people (out of ~100,000, what percentage you think travels more than 50 miles?) making the trek extrapolates to "people who live over an hour away are just as likely (or more likely) to go as people who live within an hour"?// "not likely to" is a phrase I used for just that reason// your anecdote is still valid, I guess, but proof of nothing// but I admit I know next to nothing about NASCAR and its many fansAccording to this article from Nascar, the average attendee travels 250 miles to watch the race. That's not 700 miles, granted, but it's a lot further than 50 miles.Nascar are big bidness... ;^)
The Dog Ate My Homework: FTA: And among those sympathetic to the tea party, Romney holds a 75 to 17 percent edge.WTF? If this guy only has 3/4 of the tea party vote, he's totally farked. That's like Netanyahu having 17% of the Iranian vote.
