Fox News Poll Worthless, Hands Poll Position to Jeb Bush

I was sitting in my living room watching Fox News and an election poll popped up on my screen. As is my habit I immediately counted the candidates, memorized the poll results and made a mental note of the margin of error and promptly stopped listening to the talking heads who were telling me what to think about it.

I dug up the poll here.

The important point is that the margin of error is five points, meaning that Donald Trump could just as easily have been number one. Almost any of them could have. Add or take away five points from any candidate and the results are changed massively.

The poll speaks for itself but I want you to remember to pay attention to who is advertizing to you while you watch news programs.
