A Voting Poll:
Candidate A: 30%
Candidate B: 50%
Undecided: 20%

The Table above summarizes the results of an election poll in which 4000 voters participated. In the actual election, all 4000 of these people voted and those people who chose a candidate in the poll voted for that candidate. People who were undecided voted for Candidate A in the SAME PROPORTION AS THE PEOPLE WHO CAST VOTES FOR THE CANDIDATES IN THE POLL. Of the people polled, how many voted for candidate A in the actual election?

What does "...SAME PROPORTION AS THE PEOPLE WHO CAST VOTES..." mean? I don't understand the english here.

Thanks
