It seems quite plausible to conjecture that a majority of academics in America are for Barack Obama, but does Michael Barone really expect people to believe that academics comprise the bulk of Obama’s supporters? If that’s right, then how does Barone explain Obama’s lead in the polls? Unless I’m mistaken, academics are a pretty small slice of the overall American demographic pie.

It’s all pretty bizarre. Everyone tells me that once upon a time Barone was a valuable source of information about American politics.
