which of the following would most seriously weaken the above conclusion?
a)republicans were a minority in 1984 but arepublican president was elected
e)It has been shown that 85% of republicans vote in an election, compared to 50% democrats.

I would go for A.

Despite being in minority a Repulican president was elected.

In E, its the percentage that raises some doubts.

85% Repulicans can be less than 50% Democrats if the exact numbers are not known

Whats the OA?
