‘Actually no’: Brit Hume corrects inaccurate CNN tweet on poll numbers
That tweet by CNN Politicscould be fairly misleading if you don’t click on the link and read the actual poll.
Actually no. Trump's % is 33, but his lead is only 17 points. Same with Sanders: He's at 58%, but lead is 23 points. https://t.co/fsG1T8rDa6

Exactly. Here are the full results:
Overall, 33% of likely Republican primary voters say they back Trump, giving him a 17-point edge. After seeing his lead shrink to 11 points following a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, Trump once again more than doubles the support of his nearest competitor, Marco Rubio.
Over on the Democratic side, Sanders holds 58% among likely Democratic primary voters, well ahead of Clinton’s 35%.

Apparently, CNN thinks Bernie's last name is "Sander." https://t.co/AoNPY5fwLO

After a week of scrutiny and tweets being in the spotlight, one would think CNN would be considerably careful about the tweets it sends, particularly those pertaining to the presidential race.
