Can’t Anyone Here Do Percentages?


My colleague Steve Doig captured a truly bizarre chart broadcast today on Fox News. Add the numbers to understand why.

  1. Nah, nothing out of the ordinary there. must just be they used Diebold machines for the count and they got confused as to what to do when there was more than one GOP candidate.

  2. I’m guessing the question was “If xxxx were to run for president in 2012, would you back them?”, asked three times, once for each “candidate”.

    So the numbers are probably correct; the problem comes from the graphics dept. using a pie chart inappropriately.
