Polled in what direction?

According to the AP style book, I would assume there are a few things wrong with the poll.

1)There is no margin of error listed anywhere.

2)It did not say how the poll was conducted, for example it didn't say if it was via the internet, phone, etc.

3)It also doesn't have any sub polls, like for ages of the people or if the people are male or female.

4)Also, it doesn't specify who participated in the poll.

5) It didn't say what questions where actually asked in those poll.

Good! You got the point of what the AP Stylebook says about it.
