47 Getting Its Due in the Media

The number 47 is finally getting its due in the mainstream media. Earlier this week, reporter Curtis Tate, with McClatchy Newspapers, reviewed the ways the number 47 is cropping up an uncanny number of times in the presidential race and elsewhere. In the story, “47 (percent): A prime number in politics and a whole lot else,” Pomona College students are credited with early research on the phenomena.

For more about the history of the relationship between Pomona College and 47, read "The Mystery of 47."
