His biggest lead with Ras in quite some time
I'm not sure what to make of it, because I don't really trust this GOP-leaning firm.
As many have noted, Rasmussen polls seek to create a narrative, and this could be a case of them setting us up for big Romney convention bounce later this week. Not quite sure how they do this. Perhaps they are manipulating their internals to produce a result they want.
Could Ras be catching something that other pollsters aren't? They have been surprisingly bullish (for them) on Obama for the past week, while other polls show a small post-Ryan bounce for Romney.
Nevertheless, I'll take it. Especially after the crappy ABC poll that has Romney up by 1, and a troubling Michigan poll.
