ones and twos
 n.pl.— «In the campaign’s final weekend, candidates weren’t trying to turn out voters who might not vote their way. They were chasing the “ones and twos,” political-junkie shorthand for the most likely supporters on their computer-generated lists, and firing up their volunteers.» —“Campaigns Implore the Party Faithful To Bring Their Loyalty to the Polls” by Michael Grunwald Washington Post Nov. 6, 2006.
