4. Rasmussen

Also has Romney in the lead in VA and Obama only a slight lead in OH. I honestly don't know what to think of Rasmussen. I'm told they are not reliable. I have no clue.

This is just a bump for Romney. Thank God we don't elect our President by their debate performance.

27. I don't think anyone believes Romney will win

Except Romney and Romney supporters, which are thin even on the Republican side, my friend. You see smiley faces because the Romney camp seems to think that he went through one debate and one week without a gaffe that he is hitting a home run.

Let me tell you something, my friend, when a good race is because you didn't trip over the hurdles, throw up on the judges, and crap your drawers... you aren't in a very good position.

" when a good race is because you didn't trip over the hurdles."

Grammar?

7. No shock to me. I live in this state and there is a lot of hate here. I have predicted that BO

 

will win 281 - 257

Without: Florida, NC, Va, or CO. He MUST win Ohio and according to Ras its only a 3 point spread.

10. Ras has a tendency of getting more accurate as he gets closer to the election.

This fits his MO.

25. Yep.

All three. Just watch. It'll happen. Ras will be pretty damn close on election day, but a month out, like today, he has time to play. Talk about cooking the books, indeed.

11. So, in other words the President is still 4 points ahead.

This is Rasmussen, so you have to add 6. (Until the final week, which is when he starts moving to "actual")

If so, can we see it?

18. Here's some discussion of Rasmussen's potential bias.

Certainly, he's an outlier when compared to other pollsters. I don't think there is any evidence in my links to indicate that he straightens things out closer to the election, but it only makes sense that he wouldn't want to miss the final result by a mile.

19. I don't trust Rasmussen. I just don't buy the "last week straightening-out" theory

 

Because it's not born out by evidence of poll archives.

That said, I think Rasmussen has a pro-GOP lead, and he sucked in 2010.

I don't reject the bad news, I reject the source. Rasmussen embellishes.
