Weighted Average 51% 40% 10%   << This apparent discrepancy is due to rounding: 50.78% - 40.38% = 10.4%
('Weighted Average' means each state is weighted proportionally to its share of USA population. For example, California, the most populated state, is given 71 times the weight of WY the least populated state, in a weighted avg.)
Unweighted Average 54% 38% 17%   << This apparent discrepancy is due to rounding: 54.36% - 37.52% = 16.84%
('Unweighted Average' means each state is given equal weight; population density is not taken into account).
