    Rasmussen's rightward lurch is a fairly recent phenomenon.
    you are desperately attempting to make the data fit your hypothesis - Rasmussen's voter screen methodology has remained fairly consistent. In 2010, however, they used an "off year" screen to anticipate participation, when in many areas we saw participation approaching Presidential cycle levels - which explains why polls that lean towards broader data collection did well and Rasmussen was uncharacteristically off.

    I don't have to try to make the data fit my hypothesis -- desperately or otherwise. It just does.

    In addition to the reasons suggested by Nate Silver, another reason is that Rasmussen doesn't poll cell phone users. Thus he misses the significant percentage of the population that no longer uses land lines. So happens those people are disproporitonately young and vote disproporionately for Democrats.

    Here we go, this is the point in the argument where Boo instead of actually responding to any argument that doesn't agree with his view, starts with the pejorative, juvenile, and silly tactic of repeating some word, phrase, or smiley designed to bait the opponent into getting upset.

    Give it up dude...This is a dumb tactic.

    J, this is where you ignore that no argument has even been made. Saying stupid **** isn't an argument. He has not responded to or disputed the point that $4 billion has been removed from the budget. You're free to actually make an argument, and if you do, I will respond. But please, don't act like saying just silliness requires a response.

    Yes, I did respond, obviously you ignored it. No one is disputing that 4 billion was reduced from the STATE BUDGET but what does that have to do with the local country budgets that get their funds from local property taxes? You don't apparently understand that country budgets and state budgets are different. County budgets have had to adjust revenue from what they get from the state but that does nothing to the revenue they receive from local property taxes.

    Because state budgets effect local budgets. The state is not separate, with their own separate schools. They distribute that money to schools, and without that money, the schools feel the lost. Acting as if those schools would never see that money in the first place is to be a tad delusional.

    No one said that state budgets don't affect local budgets, but that never was the point. State Budgets and local budgets are separate and any shortfall in revenue has to be handled by the local communities. My District schools opened on time yesterday and had a full staff. Any shortfall in State funding deemed important can be made up at the local level and has been.

    Again, where the spending affects them requires more than just noting they opened the school year with a full staff (as far as you know). You're education system ranks low, and I'm sure money has nothing to do with it, but the fact remains, they now have less money. The fact is your system ranks low. The fact is you were factually wrong about your deficit problems. And even though I asked you to support your claim, you have not shown they adequately made up for the short fall.

    Interesting that you focus on rankings while ignoring the context of that ranking. Included in that ranking are the influx of illegals and legal immigrants from Mexico that have impacted various school performance but rather than place blame it is more important to point out how experts like you really aren't experts at all. I am anxiously awaiting for you to prove that I am factually wrong on the deficit and my school district? You have no clue as to what you are talking about as you buy what you are told by someone else. Guess that liberal arrogance is hard to erase.
