View Diary: Likely voter screen doesn't explain Rasmussen "house effect" (103 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  Rasmussen clearly has an agenda (0+ / 0-)

    It's clear not just by their house effect, but by the questions they ask and what they choose to poll, and by their commentaries and analysis. Any lowering of bias around election time is just to further their long term goal of propping up Republicans.

    •  I wonder how much attention was paid... (4+ / 0-)

      Rasmussen has long been an accurate reporter of late-season trends, if with a slight R lean.  But I wonder how much work has ever gone into analyzing their early-season polling.  When Nate caught Strategic Vision making shit up with statistically improbable poll results, it was somewhat of a shock - no-one had done the work to analyze the results before.
