hillary polls

It was, come to think of it, either courageous or foolhardy for Hillary to march in today’s parade, which treated her so harshly during the 2000 campaign.

That’s because the Irish-American men who make up the parade’s core audience are part of the single demographic group most hostlile to Hillary: white catholics. (Parade chairman John Dunleavy, being an elderly white Catholic man, gets an extra edge.)

I couldn’t find a survey with that group broken out but, for example, in this Siena Poll (.xls):

She is viewed less favorably by whites (50%) than Blacks (86%) or Hispanics (67%)
She is viewed less favorably bymen (47%) is lower than among women (62%).
She is viewed less favorably by Catholics () is lower than among NN

Sadly, there’s no cross-tab for intoxication.
