Brendan Nyhan: Bogus 2% approval statistic

October 16, 2005

I believe I heard a late night talk show host mention the reported 2% approval statistic for President Bush among African Americans, but I didn’t think about about it much at the time. Now, from Brendan Nyhan, I learn that the number is based on a subsample of 89 people…a little small to really make a solid judgment, don’t you think? Nyhan has links to Mystery Pollster, who has lots more on this particular number.
