Are we seriously going to start trusting Rasmussen polls now?

I've said this before when it shows a Dem lead and nobody bats an eye. How DARE Rass show a Republican lead, but they ARE accurate when a Dem leads. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

People have explained over and over again to you why Democrats wet their pants at a Dem lead in a Rassmussen poll. Historically, Rassmussen has a Republican bias. So if a Dem is ahead, that bodes well for the Dem candidate. If a Dem is behind, like in this poll by 7, it is probably within the margin of error, or close, which is why Dems get overly defensive.

And how do you not know KCDem is a lost cause??

I'm not saying this poll is accurate as it's out of line as much as the PPP Poll that showed Malloy up by 6, but Rasmussen has had more of a Democrat lean this cycle than other pollsters.

The true state of the race is shaping up to be the same battle that these two candidates had in 2010, where Malloy barely won.

Realistically, the truth probably lies somewhere between the PPP and Rasmussen polls. It's gonna be close.

We can only hope that the Democratic Gubernatorial Wave is strong enough to save the likes of Malloy and Coakley!

No one has said that Rasmussen is accurate, me least of all.
