Newest New York Times poll

Poll Shows Racial Division on Obama's Candidacy

More "analysis" later, but my favorite statistic:

Among black voters, who are overwhelmingly Democrats, Mr. Obama draws support from 89 percent, compared with 2 percent for Mr. McCain.

1. Two percent? I'm pretty sure Slayer would pull better numbers at Lilith Fair.

2. That still leaves nine percent of black voters who didn't choose McCain or Obama. Bob Barr is surprisingly popular.

3. Anyone who responds to that second point with some version of the phrase "I think that means nine percent of African-American voters are undecided" is getting banned.

Nine percent of African American voters are inadvertently voting for Pat Buchanan.
