Not voting for Obama? Racist!

The meme lately has been on polls “proving” that those who oppose interracial marriage aren’t voting for Obama (but, presumably, would have voted for a white Democrat).

My latest piece for WNYC’s A Free Country blog shows why that’s a lazy, sloppy explanation not supported by the numbers.

Statistics. Sample an opinion from 200 people and then assume that the people you polled are a representation of the whole city or (worse)country.
