    Well, this is not necessarily wrong. If 3 in 10 Americans say they are indifferent regarding math, and 3 in 10 say they love it, then 4 in 10 is still a majority.

      I suggest you see a statistics text, because that is wrong.

        Both Oxford and Merriam-Webster include “the greater quantity or share” as definition for ‘majority’. Granted, those are not statistics texts, but neither is this news article.

      By dictionary definition, probably true, however most statisticians make a distinction between majority (over 50%) and plurality (the greater share of several regardless of majority).
