|Ronald Reagan||5 (31.25%)|
|Martin Van Buren||11 (68.75%)|
The voting was pretty neck and neck in the first couple of days. By midweek, Van Buren pulled ahead and left Reagan in the dust. However, neither combatant should be hard on themselves or their performance. If you combine the percentages in the above pie chart, it turns out that they gave 100.1%, collectively, which is pretty impressive.
There were a few theories floating around about how Van Buren could best someone much bigger and tougher than him. One of the commentariat found an answer in television.
Van Buren will meet George Washington in a Round of 16 bout scheduled Jan. 9.
Join us next week when Harry S Truman will face Calvin Coolidge.
