In the 1st Round, 10 out of the 19 fictional presidents moved on to the next round. Though it would probably be more interesting if the success rate of our fictional presidents varied wildly in the 2nd Round, that's actually not the case at all. Exactly half of the 10 moved on to the Round of 16.
|"Suck it, James Dale and Mays Gilliam!"|
|Like Addison's Disease.|
Not that that has anything to do with age.
That gives the elder fighters 53.3% of the wins. Not very impressive, but still unexpected.
|While the older fighter won slightly more times, the oldest fighter, Thomas "Tug" Benson, is knocked out.|
|"A 6'4" LBJ would lose to someone nine inches shorter? Totally reasonable."|
-- You, the voters
Even the party breakdown numbers are underwhelmingly uninteresting. Here we have the breakdown of combatants going into the 2nd Round:
The Democrats were able to take up space occupied by the vanishing Democrat-Republicans and the single Whig, while the Republicans held on to their quarter of the pie.
But how did we do? Last time, Tony had a pretty strongish advantage of winning over Doug 62.5% of the time. How about in the 2nd Round?
Wow, who knew analyzing numbers could be so anticlimactic? Maybe because there's an inverse relation between the excitement in the Arena and the excitement of pie charts relating to what's going on in the Arena. Now that we're deep in the Round of 16, strong opponents are facing each other. No one wants charts, they want to presidents beating each other.
Speaking of presidential fisticuffs, you should probably mosey on over here for this week's fight between George Washington and Martin Van Buren.
