    I always wanted to teach, this chart (and your analysis) would be a prime exhibit. Fox does all the things that those of us who took research and statistics classes were taught not to do.
    I don't view it as "how to lie with statistics" because it's not really "with statistics." It's just plain lying and making it look like there are valid numbers and comparisons in there.

    While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
