The Washington Post front-paged an article today about their polling of racial attitudes in the presidential race. They have some interesting data, but way down at the very bottom of the article they say this:
But McCain’s challenges are also an important part of the equation.
Numerous polls, for example, have indicated that McCain’s age may be a bigger detractor than Obama’s race. And more are now concerned that McCain will heed too closely the interests of large corporations than said so about Obama and the interests of blacks.
My questions are: “Why isn’t your article dedicated to explaining why McCain isn’t trusted not to serve the interests of his corporate masters? Why isn’t your article about people’s concerns about John McCain’s age?”
After all, as you readily admit, these two issues are bigger liabilities for McCain than Obama’s race. Maybe you could have led with that discovery.
