In a poll of eligible voters conducted on the eve of a mayoral election, more of those polled stated that they favored Panitch than stated that they favored any other candidate. Despite this result, another candidate, Yeung, defeated Panitch by a comfortable margin.

Each of the following, if true, contributes to a resolution of the discrepancy described above EXCEPT:

A. Of Yeung's supporters, a smaller percentage were eligible to vote than the percentage of Panitch’s supporters who were eligible to vote.
B. A third candidate, Mulhern, conducted a press conference on the morning of the election and withdrew from the race.
C. The poll's questions were designed by staff members of Panitch's campaign.
D. Of the poll respondents supporting Yeung, 70 percent described the election as "important" or "very important," while 30 percent of respondents supporting Panitch did the same.
E. The poll, conducted on a Monday, surveyed persons in the downtown area, and the percentage of Yeung's supporters who work downtown is lower than that of Panitch's supporters.

A directly contradicts - however many others like C and D are equally far fetched relevant points.
