dodgy math

Or maybe dodgy stats, or just dodgy reporting. I just wrote to the BBC, because in their coverage of last night’s presidential debate they said in the second paragraph that “neither was seen as an outright winner”. However further down on the very same page a CNN poll shows that approx 52% of people polled thought that Kerry won, and 38% thought Bush won. Hmmm, seems like someone won to me – I wonder why they said that was not the case?
