Buried in the second page of an 8/30/08 New York Times story on Palin and women who support Clinton is the following:
Few people claim to understand the dynamics of the Clinton vote. In the most recent New York Times/CBS News poll, conducted Aug. 15-20, 22 percent of voters who said they had voted for Mrs. Clinton in the primaries say they now support Mr. McCain, while 61 percent back Mr. Obama. Among the women who voted for Mrs. Clinton, 17 percent say they support Mr. McCain, and 63 percent Mr. Obama. (The rest were undecided.)
Keep in mind that if 22 percent of all Clinton voters support "Keating Five" McCain and only 17 percent of women Clinton supporters do, then over 22 percent of male Clintonistas are in McCain's camp right now.
The corporate media are feeding us a narrative of angry women supporters of Clinton switching to McCain, but the actual numbers strongly suggest that the narrative is dead wrong.
No wonder that this important information was buried towards the end of the article.
