The term "majority" in the election results chart is misleading. It should be called "margin of victory" instead. However, no such template exists in Wikipedia, and I have no idea how to create one or to rename the one currently called "majority." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:44, 7 February 2008 (UTC)
In this case, it's not very misleading - Doggett won more than 50%+1, so he had a majority over his nearest opponent. I think the terminology is more British than anything, where the concept of "simple majority" is what we refer to as a plurality. I do not recommend renaming or modifying that template (that might make a bunch of people upset if you don't ask first), but you can go here - Template:Election box majority - to have a starter for a new template and change a few words to your liking. --Souperman (talk) 04:22, 8 February 2008 (UTC)
I was looking at the ethnicity makeup of his constituents, and they don't add up to 100%: 66.5% White, 7.6% Black, 1.2% Asian, 66.8% Hispanic, 0.6% Native American, 0.4% other. If there is not an error here, could someone explain to me how these demographics work? Thanks! Lithrium (talk) 17:08, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
In US Census Bureau terminology, Hispanic vs non-Hispanic is a cross-classification which is completely separate from the race catgegory... Churchh (talk) 15:50, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
