Rasmussen throwing in towel??

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll

This race was very likely the last presidential election of the telephone polling era. While the industry did an excellent job of projecting last night’s election, entirely new techniques will need to be developed before 2016. The central issue is that phone polling worked for decades because that was how people communicated. In the 21st century, that is no longer true.


NOW this fucker tells us..

LOL!!!

1. They need to think of another way

to oversample Republicans. Even though they are wrong, the repubs, will continue to follow them.

4. PPP used virtually the same technology as Rasmussen.

And they were the most accurate pollster out there.

5. Lol

 

Lol, nice try Scotty. Phone polling turned out accurate for nearly every other pollster. Rasmussen is simply a right-wing partisan hack disguising himself as a pollster. He was wildly off and should be completely discredited.

7. Still lying.

Other pollsters were able to get accurate results using the same techniques... the only difference was they didnt include political bias. Rasmussen needs to be banned from any future poll aggregator sites until he can prove he is no longer a RW hack.
