Poor Byron

Byron says:

Some of the president’s critics complained about the poll. People didn’t put all the blame on Bush? Surely something was wrong.
For example, Media Matters for America, the “progressive” watchdog group, wrote a critique headlined, “Media touted questionable Washington Post/ABC poll to say public opinion of Bush’s hurricane response is mixed.”

Media Matters said the Post polled too few people and the survey was taken during a holiday weekend, when it could not reach a representative sample of Americans.

But then came another poll, this one from Gallup, with a bigger sample size, that was taken, at least in part, during this business week.

CBS News poll says: 38% Approve, 58% disapprove of Bush's handling of Katrina.

Admittedly, I find it hard to read all the way through a York column, as I tend to be hypnotized by the hair...the hair...
