Views of Stimulus vary dramatically by race

The Politico has this:

The poll, sponsored by New America Media, a corroboration of 2,500 ethnic media outlets, reported that less than 40 percent of whites, Hispanics and Native Americans said the stimulus has made the economy better, compared to 59 percent of African-Americans and 47 percent of Asian-Americans.

Among the overall sample of 1,000 respondents, 40 percent said the stimulus has made the national economy better.

“The American public currently believes that the stimulus package has not had a major impact on the national economy,” wrote pollster Sergio Bendixen in his analysis of the survey. “Only African-Americans believe that President Obama’s stimulus package ‘has made the economy better.’” . . .

If 40% of the sample say Porkulus has improved the economy...and only blacks believe that...then 40% of the sample must be black.

Is that a representative cross-section of the US population?

Or were these pollsters searching for a better result than they could get if they didn't skew the sample base?

Still a pretty lousy result, if only 40% believe the economy is better for this monstrosity.
