RAS had Mccain gaining In PA last fall.They had people supporting Drill Baby Drill.How well
did that go.As a rule I Ignore RAS untill we are In General Elections then they can be taken
seriously.As for CBS/NYTimes polls calling them liberal orginazations are a joke.The New York
Times buried the surveilance programs till 2005.And If you think CBS Is proObama that Is
news to the Democratic base.

Not really.  His final poll (if I'm not mistaken) showed Obama+8.

Rasmussen was pretty accurate during this cycle. He may have been 1-2 points bias to the Republicans, but nothing along the lines of how this forum depicts them. Obama's approvals are certainly not at the NYT and CBS levels. Those firms are just as bias as Rasmussen. Anyone who claims otherwise is a mindless hack.
No one is arguing that his election polls are inaccurate but rather his off year polls.

Really? He was pretty accurate on the 2006 Senate races and nailed Virginia. In which case was he inaccurate in off year polls? I am using his most recent examples. I know Rasmussen was a mess in 2000 and 2002.

Do you think Barack Obama was born in the United States?

54% Yes, 26% No

That's pretty embarassing considering the "Yes" is only a few points higher than the percentage that voted for him.

Don't forget than there is a part of the ''No'' who voted for Barack Obama. In the polls, there were always a part of the population who was ''I vote for Obama, but I think he is not born in America''.

NYT/CBS polls: LIBERAL SOURCE, LOLOL.
Rasmussen polls: Completely accurate and fair.

Also, since Republicans have engaged in tactics of organized disinformation, disruption, and outright lying, this should hardly be surprising.

Yikes:

8/12/09:
48% approve
52% disapprove

I still don't understand why Rasmussen doesn't have a registered voter model.

Marist Poll:

55% Approve
35% Disapprove

This survey of 938 United States residents was conducted on August 3rd through August 6th, 2009. There are 845 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant at 3.5%.  The error margin increases for cross-tabulations.

This poll is even more exaggerated than Gallup, which is a little exaggerated as it is.

You forget that Gallup was at 58-36 between August 3-6, when this Marist poll was conducted.

RV about 3% lower than adults is ok, disapproval higher could be MoE movement.

Something interesting from this on Lincoln, is that only 27% of voters will definately vote for Lincoln in 2010, meaning Lincoln could be somewhat vulnerable, with the right opponent. Huckabee would probably easily beat Lincoln, if he ran.

The Rasmussen poll of Virginia is on the heel of another poll, so I call the state a tie. Arkansas? A matter of time.

Obama must in Pennsylvania about 53-47 to have a reasonable chance to win in view of the state being about D+3.
