Yes it is. Two halves is a whole unit. It takes three thirds to be a whole unit, so two thirds is smaller.

Simple majority is over half of everyone. i.e. 51/100 Two thirds majority is two thirds of everyone. i.e. 66.6666666.../100

2/3 rounded to the nearest half is 1/2 or 0.5

1 half plus 1 half equals a whole

One half.

Four sixths, which is equal to two thirds, if rounded to the nearest half is approximately one half. In terms of a decimal analysis, two thirds is very close to .67, and .67 - .5 = .17, so two thirds is just .17 more than a half, but if we compare it to the number one, two thirds is fully a third (or .333...) less than one. And that is more than .17 so two thirds is closer to a half than it is to one.
