Looking over the article that the Chicago Tibune released on regards to the upcoming presidential race between Al Gore and Hilary Clinton appeared to be somewhat interesting. However, a few things that should have been done differentally... In the Ap stylebook under polls and survey there are certain steps that should be followed when it comes to these type of stories.. First, the story never said how the survey was conducted or how many people were actually interviewed for the story. Second, the author made a big deal about the 51% to 49% when they should have simply expressed the margin of error between the two candidates, which would have been 2%. Thirdly, they didnt say who is sponsoring the poll..
