A story in today's paper has the headline "Obama, Romney make a few factual missteps." But then the last line of this article is this:
"In 2012, that favorability figure had fallen to 80 percent to 14 percent."
The sentence before read "In 2008, 84 percent of the world had a positive view of the United States and 14 percent negative."
Based on this sentence, I guess they meant to say
"In 2012, that favorability figure had fallen to 80 percent."
