Brewtown Politico

Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


I know the news is saturated with coverage on the Schiavo story, but I found this latest Gallup poll data interesting. The results show across political and religious lines, the majority of Americans support the decision to remove the feeding tube.

However, CNN got caught red-handed creating a distorted graph using the Gallup data where it appears Democrats far outnumber Republicans and independents when it comes to supporting that very decision. Anyone who has taken statistics in college knows this is one of the ways to intentionally mislead people into thinking a poll says something it doesn't.
