Rasmussen was crap in 2000, Solid in 2004 and 2008 (most were, there were even more accurate pollsters in 2008) and did horrendous in 2010
. I mean, how do you get a certain race 40 points completely wrong?
If you go by what Rasmussen is reporting now, Mittens gets New Hampshire and North Carolina. Obama wins all the other battle ground states. Too bad for Mittens.
Yep. If you go entirely by Rasmussen's numbers right now, Obama still wins 313-225.
This is starting to seem like another example of attempted refutation of science by conservatives. I'm sorry you either don't agree or can't understand, guys, but polling, statistics and the like...it's a science
. You can't make pre-ordained assumptions on the party leanings of a particular state before taking a poll. You must
attempt to sample the most accurate representation of the US, otherwise your numbers are worthless.
What world do you guys live in where not calling cell phones is going to give you an accurate representation of the populace?? Just looking at my and my wife's own families (who are about 50/50 conservative/liberal), there are 12 family units in our immediate family. 4 years ago, 6 of 12 had landlines. Currently only 3 do, and take a guess the age and political leanings of those 3. Derp.
Numbers and science are nothing to be afraid of, conservatives.
