The Polling On Wright

It appears that only a majority of Republicans buy the notion that Obama shares Wright's views as expressed in a tiny proportion of his sermons on YouTube. Eric Kleefeld has more:

The internals show only 17% of Democrats saying Obama shares Wright's ideas, along with 20% of independents and 36% of Republicans.

Fox also asked respondents whether they had doubts about Obama because of his association with Wright. The results: 35% Yes, 54% No, with the numbers standing at 26%-66% for Democrats, 27%-61% among independents, and 56%-33% with Republicans.

The independents seem to me to be the critical block. Obama has clearly been wounded by the onslaught. But it is not fatal.
