One thing that becomes more and more clear is that it's HARD to get 75% in any kind of poll. Obviously that's much higher than a majority, higher even then a supermajority. If the BR voting for the Hall of Fame was like a vote for class president, Pete Rose and Barry Bonds would have swamped the competition. They each got 72% of the vote. That's a crazy high total. Heck, even James Madison in his historic stomping of Charles Pinckney in the 1808 presidential election got less than 65% of the vote.
