    grammar

    Is the following right? For example, is the use of "the east", "central", and "twice" right?

    It is interesting to note that candidates in the east are represented almost twice as much as candidates in central in the sample population.

    Re: grammar

    The use of "central" is incorrect.
    Do you perhaps mean "candidates in/from the centre" instead?

    Re: grammar

    I mean candidates in central regions (such as Illinois, Iowa) and candidates in the east (Boston, New York).
