That tweet by CNN Politics could be fairly misleading if you don’t click on the link and read the actual poll.
Actually no. Trump's % is 33, but his lead is only 17 points. Same with Sanders: He's at 58%, but lead is 23 points. https://t.co/fsG1T8rDa6

Exactly. Here are the full results:
Overall, 33% of likely Republican primary voters say they back Trump, giving him a 17-point edge. After seeing his lead shrink to 11 points following a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, Trump once again more than doubles the support of his nearest competitor, Marco Rubio.
Over on the Democratic side, Sanders holds 58% among likely Democratic primary voters, well ahead of Clinton’s 35%.

Apparently, CNN thinks Bernie's last name is "Sander." https://t.co/AoNPY5fwLO

After a week of scrutiny and tweets being in the spotlight, one would think CNN would be considerably careful about the tweets it sends, particularly those pertaining to the presidential race.
