CNN: "Oops, yeah, I guess we had our finger on the scale" 

From a post SOTU address CNN poll,

The strong positives for the president's policies may in part be a reflection of the poll's sample. Of the 485 people surveyed, 52 percent identified themselves as Republicans, 25 percent as Democrats and 22 percent as independents.

UPDATE: CNN has updated the the article so as to accurately present the group being polled: those who watched the speech, not Americans in general. That's two posts in a row where I've mentioned sloppy editing at the CNN desk which has later been corrected - the link to a video report about the Iraqi vote only shared a title with a Nazi propaganda film for a few hours before it was changed to something inoffensive.
