Star Tribune uses survey for story

| No Comments

The Star Tribune's recent article, Survey says state is on the wrong track, used numbers in a way that was not overwhelming.

The lead simplifies a survey's actual findings to say "more than half."

The story then falls into a more specific second paragraph, noting similarities with last year's survey.

The reporter may have used some math to arrive at the numbers, but it is unclear.

The numbers come from a survey from St. Cloud State University. It probably does not include all the numbers from the survey.
