View Diary: Rasmussen: Hillary Regains Double Digit Lead (196 comments)

  •  See the 12/1 tracking poll data. (4+ / 0-)

    Not much to go on, but to certain Obama fans that data point translates into "She's toast."

      It's a little premature to be talking about Edwards, Obama or Clinton being "toast."  That's just as ridiculous as talking about a candidate being "inevitable," or even having a safe lead.  This diarist either got some facts majorly wrong, conflated New Hampshire numbers with national numbers, or included a significant typo in the title of the diary.  Either way, this diary is useless, which is the point I'm making.

      A conservative is just a liberal who hasn't needed a second chance yet.

        The numbers are from Rasmussen, not me. She fell to single digits on the 12/1 tracking poll. She regained her double digit lead on 12/2 and 12/3. There is no typo. Last time I checked, "regained" meant "to gain back". Clearly that's what these numbers show.

        I seem to remember a host of diaries and comments trumpeting her fall to single digits as proof that her campaign was doomed, but now that they're swinging the other way, the numbers are "useless" according to you.


        •  Nine points. I missed that. (0+ / 0-)

          Still, I think it's irrelevent.  I thought it was irrelevent that she dipped there on December 1, just as it's irrelevent today.  Sorry about the single-digit thing; that was my mistake.

          The numbers still have her down four points for the week.  I doubt that's enough to say it's time for Hil to give up the ghost, but it's not really a big deal, no.

          Those other diaries you mentioned "trumpeting her fall to single digits" were useless, just as your diary is useless.  Two uselesses don't make a useful.  Or something.

          A conservative is just a liberal who hasn't needed a second chance yet.
