Spin Can Make Polls (and Politics)

ESWN will love this. A poll has seen the Hong Kong public give Legco a "satisfaction" rating of 28%, as opposed to 23% dissatisfied with Legco. Chief Executive Donald Tsang's satisfaction rating is 58%. What headline would you come up with on those stats? The SCMP came up with this:

A record-high 1 in 4 happy with Legco

Completely factual, completely besides the point.
