Support for I-94 expansion below 50%

That wasn't the headline, of course. But it could have been.

A survey shows 49% for I-94 expansion, 41% for high speed rail and 42% for commuter rail. So the Journal Sentinel played up the lack of support for rail -- in the four-county metro Milwaukee area, which includes three conservative red counties and one big blue one.

Margin of error? Plus or minus 5 per cent. So support for I-94 expansion could have been as low as 44%, and support for rail as high as 47%.

But that wouldn't fit the newspaper's template, as my old friend Jessica McBride used to say.
