I think we're on the same page here about.  If someone tried to claim that NYTimes readers all agree and hence that was evidence of consensus within the USA, I would be the first to call shenanigans.

BUT - given that there's significant disagreement within the NYTimes readership, then there are two possibilities:

1) all the people in the rough are NYT readers, and the rest of the USA are in wild agreement with one half of the NYT-reader opinion.

2) the lack of consensus within NYT readership matches a wider lack of consensus within the USA.

I consider case (1) above to be extremely unlikely.
