Candidate: I am worried about the effects that the recent media coverage of my personal life will have on my chances of gaining office. Even though the reports are untrue, some voters interviewed on television, in response to these reports, have already expressed doubts regarding my ability to lead.
Campaign manager: Your concern is unfounded. Of 1,000 people in this city randomly surveyed by e-mail, only 25 have responded that their perception of your ability to lead has been negatively impacted by the recent media coverage.

The campaign manager's argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the ground that it fails to acknowledge the possibility that


(A) future media reports that follow up on the story of the candidate's personal life will further damage the public's perception of the candidate's ability to lead

(B) the candidate's main opponent will use the opportunity created by the recent media coverage to conduct her own survey to assess the damage done to her opponent's credibility

(C) the voting public would understand that its reaction to the recent media coverage of the candidate's personal life was the intended primary focus of the survey

(D) opinions expressed in television interviews are not always the most reliable indicator of how interviewees are likely to act in given situations

(E) many of those surveyed who are skeptical of the candidate's ability to lead due to the recent reports did not respond to the survey

The campaign manager's argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the ground that it fails to acknowledge the possibility that
(A) future media reports that follow up on the story of the candidate's personal life will further damage the public's perception of the candidate's ability to lead -Anything can happen in future, so we can't evaluate the argument on the basis of this option.
(B) the candidate's main opponent will use the opportunity created by the recent media coverage to conduct her own survey to assess the damage done to her opponent's credibility -If the current survey is correct, the opponents survey will also show the same results. Those results won't help in criticising the manager
(C) the voting public would understand that its reaction to the recent media coverage of the candidate's personal life was the intended primary focus of the survey -This strengthens manager's position
(D) opinions expressed in television interviews are not always the most reliable indicator of how interviewees are likely to act in given situations -TV interviews were mentioned by candidate
(E) many of those surveyed who are skeptical of the candidate's ability to lead due to the recent reports did not respond to the survey -Correct
