"71% of Obama voters regret voting for him," wrote World Net Daily.
"Poll: 71% of Obama Voters, 55% Democrats 'Regret' Voting for His Re-election," read the Washington Examiner headline.
Unfortunately for conservatives, the unbelievable poll was unbelievable for a reason: It was wrong.
If you look at the screenshot above, you'll note that the sample size for the "regret" question was just 35 people -- much smaller than the 396 people the poll tested who said they voted for Obama.
In a previous question, the poll did find that 10 percent of Obama supporters said they would vote for someone else if the election were replayed, but the 71 percent who said they regretted their vote came from this smaller group of people -- not from all Obama voters.
In other words, the percentage of Obama voters who say they regret their vote, according to the poll, is closer to 6 percent -- not 71 percent.
YouGov didn't respond to a request for comment, but that poll has been updated.
