  •  The problem (10+ / 0-)

    Is its impossible to poll for a ideological sense of reality. Rassmussen tries to do the best they can to bridge scientific polling data and ideological rigidness that the right demands. Its an impossible task. The right wing wants to believe hating Obama means there are more republicans than there were in 2010. Its almost not fair to compare Rassmussen to actual polling firms. Their output is apples and oranges compared to scientific polling. I don't blame Rasmussen. They do it because there is a market for false ideological narratives. The right wing echo chamber NEEDS Rasmussen. Im sure Rasmussen is extraordinarily profitable.

    The problem again is a lazy corporate media that needs faux balance. They "balance" science and math with ideological PR and act like they are both the same and its shameful.
