### HideShow timer Statistics

In august 1980, according to New york times news poll,36% of the voters called themselves republican or said they were indipendents leaning toward being republicans.In november 1984, the republican figure rose to 47%.But in the latest times survey, they were down to 38%.therefore the democrats are likely to win the next election.

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 cant choose b/w these...any thoughts??
Please explain ur answers...both are very close choices i guess

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
