Numbers

We keep hearing these numbers in the news as if they have a direct relation to some particular result. If Cambridge Analytica had 30 million records it does not automatically mean that so many millions of people had their minds changed about who to vote for. Yes, they like to brag, but they have no proof. It seems that the significance of the numbers varies according to who is quoting them and at what time.
