A couple more things about that Byron York column. First, the topline argument about President Obama’s popularity is even sillier than it first seems, because the president’s popularity has risen with whites and held even with blacks since the election.
62 percent of whites approve of the job Obama is doing as president. Among blacks, the number is 96 percent.
Obama won 43 percent of the white vote and 95 percent of the black vote. His black support has increased by only one percent, but his white support has soared by 44 percent.
The other strange thing about York is that all of this appeared in one of Washington, D.C.’s three newspapers — a city that’s 55 percent black, with an electorate that’s 56 percent black. The Examiner isn’t generally read by black Washingtonians, though, which might be one reason why the paper’s op-ed brass thought it wise to publish a piece about why those people didn’t really count.
