A more interesting question is how Daniel Butler and David Broockman can blatently manipulate their data, presenting relative values as absolutes, and use this inaccurate reflection to support a pre-determined but unfounded conclusion, and be treated seriously. The results appear in a table, showing that the group that responded most to the DeShawn e-mail was "white Republicans." They had a higher response rate with Jake, but overall DeShawn got the best response from that group. The second highest percentage of responses came from white Democrats. Minority Democrats were third, but looked good only because they totally blew off poor Jake, and minority Republicans loved Jake and kind of ignored DeShawn. While I support increased numbers of minority representatives, I could never use this foolishness to back me up.
