A look inside the Mind of a NYr

Romney Leads Obama in Latest Poll: How Bad Is It?

Posted by
In my neck of artisanal, hormone-free Brooklyn, the latest CBS News/New York Times poll, which shows Mitt Scissorhands leading “The First Gay President” by three points, landed with a nasty thud. “I can’t believe he might lose,” my wife said when she spotted the offending numbers on the Web. “People are really willing to vote for Mitt Romney? They hate Obama so much they’d vote for Romney?”
Evidently so—not that you’d know it from a casual read of the print edition of today’s Times. The editors buried the lead in the fifteenth paragraph of a down-page storyon A17.

To add insult to injury, the poll suggested the public is skeptical of Obama’s conversion to the cause of legalizing gay marriage. (This was the finding that the Times devoted most of its page A17 story to.) Sixty-seven per cent of respondents said they thought the President changed tack mostly for political reasons, and just sixteen per cent said his announcement would make them more likely to vote for him.

Put it all together like that and it’s enough to spoil the breakfast of anybody, myself included, who fears what another four years of Republican rule would do to this country.

When Nixon had his landslide vote in 72 another writer for the NYr had this to say: “Pauline Kael famously commented, after the 1972 Presidential election, ‘I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.’”
Ahh the denizens of the Big Apple, they live in their own little bubble.

  6. Nixon a true Idol. Nixon had no fear, people feared him…lol You know he was the only President in our lifetime to refuse Secret Service protection after he left office. He was asked once why, his response was simple. “Who would screw with me?”….lol Hutzpah
