This Is A Bad Tweet, 'Hardball'

Maybe you guys want to double check this.

What does it mean if Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton in polls of New Hampshire voters by margins that range from nine points to thirty points? Ordinarily, this question wouldn't be answered by saying, "Depends on who you ask?" But MSNBC's Hardball apparently decided to make this difficult, by tweeting this:

To be fair, the segment in question discusses the latest national Quinnipiac poll in which Sanders and Clinton are virtually tied. But the screen grab accompanying the tweet is about New Hampshire.

Get it together, you guys, you're blowing it.
