No, that wouldn't suit your agenda but to make a statement that Rasmussen is at or near the bottom in accuracy is a distortion if not a down right lie as Presidential results vs. their polls show. Basing your statement on 2010 is typical of a liberal

    Let's see if I have this right, Rasmussen is the least reliable polling agency and then you say this? How was Rasmussen in 2004?

    If it makes you feel better, Rasmussen was accurate in '08

    Not enough liberal indoctrination in TX for you? Just hate those TX economic results, don't you? Trying to justify liberalism is very tough so demonize the opposition.

    By Nate Silver, who tracks all of the polling firms:

    "The 105 polls released in Senate and gubernatorial races by Rasmussen Reports and its subsidiary, Pulse Opinion Research, missed the final margin between the candidates by 5.8 points, a considerably higher figure than that achieved by most other pollsters. Some 13 of its polls missed by 10 or more points, including one in the Hawaii Senate race that missed the final margin between the candidates by 40 points, the largest error ever recorded in a general election in FiveThirtyEight's database, which includes all polls conducted since 1998.

    Moreover, Rasmussen's polls were quite biased, overestimating the standing of the Republican candidate by almost 4 points on average. In just 12 cases, Rasmussen's polls overestimated the margin for the Democrat by 3 or more points. But it did so for the Republican candidate in 55 cases -- that is, in more than half of the polls that it issued.

    Rasmussen's polls have come under heavy criticism throughout this election cycle, including from FiveThirtyEight. We have critiqued the firm for its cavalier attitude toward polling convention. Rasmussen, for instance, generally conducts all of its interviews during a single, 4-hour window; speaks with the first person it reaches on the phone rather than using a random selection process; does not call cellphones; does not call back respondents whom it misses initially; and uses a computer script rather than live interviewers to conduct its surveys. These are cost-saving measures which contribute to very low response rates and may lead to biased samples.

    Rasmussen also weights their surveys based on preordained assumptions about the party identification of voters in each state, a relatively unusual practice that many polling firms consider dubious since party identification (unlike characteristics like age and gender) is often quite fluid."

    I'm more concerned with what Rasmussen is doing NOW than I am about what they did in 2004.

    How about now, a question for you, Adam, and any other liberal on this thread, would you rather live in a state governed by someone like Rick Perry who believes in personal responsibility and your ability to choose what is in your best interest or a state governed by Barack Obama who believes it is the government's role to decide what is in your best interest? In TX we have the freedom to choose whereas in the Obama world the govt. knows what is best and can better provide personal responsibility services to you.
