How to do a 1x2 frequency comparison?

53 of 90 for one group and 52 of 77 for the other have a desired characteristic. What statistical test would I use to compare these and why did I have so much trouble figuring this out online? I think it's just a 1x2 comparison. Thanks!

Each subject has 2 features: group (1 or 2), and desired characteristic (yes or no). So it's a 2x2 table.

With kind regards

Please see attached screenshot. I only have one piece of data to enter per group (frequency as a percentage), right?

You enter data into 2 rows (group 1 and group 2) and into 2 columns (desired characteristc yes and desired characteristic no).
In effect, you put your data into 4 cells.

Ah ha. I seriously need a Stats 101 refresher. p = 0.250. Thanks for your help!
