in reply to Preferred way of deciding the President for once and all

"Picking a Florida Ballot at random" - mathematically speaking, this is not very different from what is happening right now, is it.

perl -e 'print "America is currently relying on ", sprintf("%.6f", ($ARGV[0]/(48787586+48977721+2671144))*100), " % of its voters to make the decision on the presidency"'

Just take as argument for this small one-liner the current number of Florida votes separating Bush and Gore.
