Math is hard at CNN, but they hilariously give 110%

Math is hard at CNN, but they hilariously give 110%

Math is hard for the folks at CNN. They demonstrated this Thursday evening when “the most trusted name in news” attempted to conduct an on-the-air poll for the referendum vote to determine whether Scotland will achieve independence from the UK.

By now, everyone is aware that the referendum failed–Scotland will remain within the fold of the United Kingdom.

“Like millions of other people, I am delighted,” Prime Minister David Cameron said in a speech outside 10 Downing Street on Friday morning, Fox News reported. “It would have broken my heart to see our United Kingdom come to an end.”

But the prime minister wasn’t half as delighted as viewers of CNN when they watched the results come in.

A Twitter user with the handle “Financial Acrobat” noticed something odd about CNN’s polling numbers, and tweeted his findings.

Now let the hilarity begin!

Financial Acrobat’s tweet was quickly picked up by MicNews editor Jared Keller, who received his own hilarious replies:

Then there was my favorote:

Maybe what CNN needs is some instruction in math using the Common Core Curriculum Standards.
