I will protect your pensions. Nothing about your pension is going to change when I am governor. - Chris Christie, "An Open Letter to the Teachers of NJ" October, 2009

Wally World

Wally Edge makes me nuts sometimes; but I have to admit, there are other times when he nails it:
Of the 224 school budgets that were approved by voters, 54 of them passed with 52% of the vote or less.  Of the 318 school budgets that failed, 55 of them went down by a margin of less than two percentage points.  Statewide, voters rejected school budgets by a 52%-48% margin
Do these sounds like"mandate" numbers to you?
