CNBC reporter John Harwood found out this week what happens when you poll people and don’t skew it through the eyes of the media.
On Thursday he posted a poll on his Twitter page and asked people who they trust more, the intelligence community or Wikileaks.
After more than 84,000 votes the results were a resounding victory for Wikileaks with a whopping 83 percent of respondents picking them.

The victory for Wikileaks followed a similar poll conducted by Lou Dobbs in which he asked if Americans believed President Obama or Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Social media was quick to mock Harwood.

Who they didn’t believe more than anyone was Hardwood himself.

@mimimayesTN @JohnJHarwood @JohnQPu43054918 Did Harwood run this poll by Podesta for approval before he posted it?
