Rasmussen

Rasmussen has not yet updated but I have a feeling when it does some of us aren't gonna be happy. Lets remember our guy won the debate last night but it takes a few days for things to trend down and we'll see our good results in a few days.

1. Drudge teases that it's 50-46.

There wouldn't be any significant post-debate impact.

2. They have not, but RCP has the ratings. R by 4.

Also PPP has R by 2.

3. Latest

 

First day after third debate:

Rass 50 R 46 O

Gallup 52 R 45 O

Favorable 50 R 45 O

Why isn't this changing for us?

7. One of those is a 7-day rolling average

The other is a 3-day average.

Neither poll could have gotten more than a handful of calls in after the debate.

How much impact were you expected from... say... a five point bounce out of 20% of a one-day sample that makes up 15% of the weekly average? That wouldn't be even a rounding error.

8. Polls

I haven't visited DU in a long time since I live in the UK but I do remember the last time I was here quite a few of us were in a panic that President Obama was in real danger of losing the election to McCain. I've been told I'm a fair statistician when it comes to reading and predicting poll results so allow me do give a prediction:look for Rasmussen to have President Obama up by (least) 2 points by 26-10!
Check back in a few days. While I can't legally vote in the states I am a big Obama supporter, in more ways than one.

thanks

Who cares if mitt wins the southern states by 60% margins? But feel free to obsess about them while the rest of us watch the swing states.

15. Is that why Intrade went from 39% to middle 40s?

 

One stupid rasmussen report at +4?. Intrade went up to 47? It is now fluctuation from lower 40s. Is something Major going on? I never saw a jump that big so quick. 11% in a few hours. As long as its just nonsense and not a news story then its just noise. If I had romney shares I would sell them all now. and everyone is buying them?

20. No, please express even more concern.

It's kind of fun at this point to predict where concern will come from. I"m getting pretty good at it. I'm thinking maybe we should start a concern thread, for all concerned posters to go. Although, I guess any thread with Rasmussen or Gallup in the title is just as good at drawing concern, I guess. That concerns me.

19. Or not.

R 48.4 ---> 48.6
O 45.6 ---> 45.4

Does that change the race fundementally? No

But by rounding up, you move from R 48, O 46 to R 49, R 45.

Not saying this is what happened. Just saying there is no way to know, and no reason to spend time on these types of polls, except for fun.

24. Well...The Average Can Be Skewed By Outliers. That's Why I Prefer To Look At The Median.

And Sam Wang who nailed 04 and 08 doing just that has O as a prohibitive favorite*. Now, he could be wrong. Just because he's a genius and teaches neuroscience at an Ivy League university doesn't mean he's infallible but until he and others who are using similar methods are proven fallible I will remain guardedly optimistic.

What's the alternative. Being miserable for the next two weeks.

*Wang only uses state polls.

33. Statistics 101

The median is a better indicator than the mean because the mean can be skewed by outliers. Bill Gates walks into a restaurant with nineteen patrons. The mean net worth of the patrons become $3 billion dollars.

26. stop freaking out, polls are tied or Obama is leading

People need to take a chill pill and look at all the polls.

The following are the polls from Monday:

Gallup - R 6 points
Politico - R - 2 points
Monmouth - 3 R 3 points
Rasmussen - R 4 points

CBS - Obama 2 points
ABC - Obama 1 point
IBD/TIPP - Obama 4 points
Was/times - Obama 3 points

Quinnipac Ohio - Obama 5 points


(Now, which of the above polls would you find more credible?

The ones that dont include cell phones which show Romney leading OR the ones that include cells which show Obama leading?

At worst its a tied national race with Obama still ahead in the swing states OR its Obama leading by a slight margin whilst also being ahead in the swing states.

Also, PPP just came out with a poll today showing a tied race which is an improvement for Obama from last week when they had Romney ahead by 4 points.

30. Rasmussen is showing R plus 4 with Obama's approval at 50%.

I could laugh but I don't need to.

ABC, CBS and NBC have it a tied race or Obama ahead. Remember, Gallup and Rasmussen were terrible in 2010. And the Battleground poll really broke it down for us yesterday. Obama is ahead in the midwest and west and east but really behind in the south. Romney can drive up all of his numbers among that region all he wants to and still lose the Presidency.
I throw it into the average with the rest of them but isn't it funny that the big failures of 2010 polling are dragging the average in national polling down for President Obama?

Honestly, this is about a tied race and any poll that says otherwise I just shrug at, even IBC/Tipp. This will come down to certain swing states. I mean, PPP had it tied today. Look at the outliers and just ignore them.

poll showed Obama gaining:

New UPI/Cvoter Poll O48 R48

Haven't seen this anywhere else but HuffPost.

10/16 - 10/23 1,162 LV O48 R48

Here's link to Scribd docoument.

Last UPI poll I could find was from 10/12/2012 - 10/18/2012 Obama 46 Romney 48 so Obama is up 2 from last poll.
