So you give a speech to an audience of hundreds of thousands, and after your speech, 458 people take the time to come up to you and say hi afterwards. 431 (94%) of those people said, "Wow, great talk. I really liked what you had to say!," you'd think to yourself, "Yea, but I bet everyone else hated it." ;-)

I think we all got your point. You think 458 does not a sample make. Got it.

If the speech is about male pattern baldness and you gave the speech at the clinic for male baldness and they paid to be there and/or support the clinic with donation. Then if 94% of those coming up to you afterwards were men with male pattern baldness or men worried about male pattern baldness saying your speech sounded really good and they agree and then if you use that as a indicator as to what the whole group thinks then yea that is a bad sample..
