At the Corner, Jonah blinks in wide-eyed wonder like Alfalfa, and asks in a voice of pure childlike innocence whether all those Buckwheats weren’t tainting the He-Man Obama Haters Club:
This is purely a methodological question. If the reporting on blacks said they were torn between the candidates I wouldn’t be asking this question. But his focus group is allegedly a collection of “swing voters” from Virginia. And it appears there are a relatively large number of blacks in the focus group. I keep reading that blacks are supporting Obama somewhere between 95 and 99 percent. So, purely as a statistical matter, how do you explain having — by my very rough guestimate — 10% of Luntz’s swing voters being black? I’m just curious.
Just wondering. Just puzzlin’ a wee bit. Don’t mean anything by it. I’m sure they’re all very nice people, taken on an individual basis, but the blacks, they do have a hive mind, so really those cable news folks might as well have given their response-o-meters to the Borg.
