SHORTER BYRON YORK: OBAMA MORE POPULAR WITH BLACKS THAN WITH, Y'KNOW, PEOPLE
Is there another way to interpret this passage from an examination of recent poll results by Byron York of The Examiner?
On his 100th day in office, Barack Obama enjoys high job approval ratings, no matter what poll you consult. But if a new survey by the New York Times is accurate, the president and some of his policies are significantly less popular with white Americans than with black Americans, and his sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are.
That's right -- if very high popularity among blacks makes Obama's positions seem popular "overall," they aren't really popular "overall," because blacks don't really count as part of the populace "overall." They're not people, you see. They're just, y'know, blacks. So they don't count -- "overall."
