The [Monday] Papers

"It's Donald Trump in Illinois," Lynn Sweet reports for the Sun-Times.

"Trump, at 30 percent, is the top GOP presidential candidate in Illinois, according to a new poll, with double the points of Sens. Ted Cruz at 15 percent and Marco Rubio at 13 percent."

Whoa, if true!

It's not.

In the 18th paragraph, we learn this about the poll:

[H]alf the respondents were 62 years old and over.

For Christ's sake.

*

Two paragraphs later:

The biggest distinctions in the poll came in the 26-to-35 age group, in which Rubio came in first at 19 percent to Trump's 16 percent and 12 percent each for Christie and Cruz.

That strikes me as significant - unless half of those who actually go to the polls will be those seniors backing Trump. Not bloody likely.

*

How is this poll even news?

My guess: because results were "shared" with Sweet. Exclusive!

*

Who conducted the poll? Joe Caccitolo, who has virtually no web presence. Which may explain why he conducted a poll that only contacted landlines. Which is why his results are wack.
