    • You’re completely missing the point. People tend to be more likely to vote for incumbents when they feel better about life. Not everyone is a raging partisan, so when your team is winning and you don’t feel strongly about either candidate, it’s not silly to think that someone might be more likely to just accept current leadership. The difference in the race was only 2%, so it only took one person in 100 to voting for the incumbent rather than the challenger to change the outcome.
