  •  They only surveyed seven states (0+ / 0-)

    Only 48.6% white?  37.4% black, when the US has only 13-14%?  Only 7.5% latino?

    It's not a national survey. I just checked the census bureau's 2008 estimates for the seven states that were surveyed. In those seven states, the percentages range from 30% black in GA to 6.7% black in CA.

    But even if blacks were overrepresented in the sample, it almost doesn't matter if they were trying to figure out what teabag-receptive people think.

    Listen, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.
