Can Seth Godin be wrong?

Via Ben Barren, Seth Godin on a blind taste test of search engine results:

About 65% of those tested said that Yahoo or MSN was the most relevant.

Um, Seth... no. The graphs clearly show Google on 42% with a 10-point lead over Yahoo!, with MSN bringing up the rear. It's not as if Seth can claim to have been referring to an earlier data set either, as he mentions 12,000 as the sample size, and the numbers I just quoted are based on 12,085 searches. So where did 65% come from? I'd say Google is doing pretty well in that graph.
