    “Polls Show Voters Prefer Lake Merritt Adjacent Stadium”

    Not accurate. “Prefer” suggests a comparison of the 3 sites in the poll, which was not the case. The poll included only 1 option, and the wording was very favorable, so it’s no surprise people responded positively. This is what’s known as a push poll, designed to elicit a certain outcome; a completely unbiased poll would have sought opinions on 2 other optimistically-worded scenarios as well.

    The original headline was that voters “favor” the site, not “prefer”, which is a more accurate characterization.
