Isn't Rasmussen the one that usually skews republican, and is almost always wrong?

Yes, and yes. It's the only one that Trump's ever tweeted about, and it's usually because he hit 50-51%.

Gleefully responding to a Rasmussen poll does not in itself imply partisanship. If a pollster is Republican-leaning, and STILL has him down by that much, imagine how bad actual public opinion is against him.

What's satisfying about this is that unlike some other things (e.g. Lincoln Project videos), he likes Rasmussen and will almost certainly see this. Come oooooooon, debilitating stroke!

Doesn't Rasmussen usually come more in line with reality as the election gets closer?  If so, seems like they had to do a pretty good swing to do that.

Rasmussen not only skews Trump, but the Twitter account has been known to have Trumpish meltdowns when questioned.

Either the compromised Trumpster running the account has been sacked, or this is the best they could skew it.

I'm working on it...hence why I told Rasmussen I was a moderate independent...instead of antifa...because THAT WAS an option.

Until the last few weeks of the election, when they switch their sampling to give more inline results.  usually

Rasmussen also tends to reduce their pro-GOP skew as elections approach. That way they can push a "The Liberal Media is ignoring the Silent Majority!" narrative with their outlier polls without getting dinged for blatantly inaccurate final polls that get them discarded from polling aggregators.

They play this game every election. Rasmussen is as inaccurate as the GOP needs them to be to drive a narrative.

Albert911emt: Isn't Rasmussen the one that usually skews republican, and is almost always wrong?


Yeah. This one's gotta be a low outlier, or just an anomaly. There's no way he's cratered hard enough for this in just one week.

or Rasmussen switched to their "just before the election" sampling method a few weeks early this year so that they look more legit, being in line with everyone else.

Ayup. That's them.

Making this...

FTA: "The race had narrowed over the previous three weeks, but Biden has now cleared the 50% mark for the first time," Rasmussen reported"

...especially heartening.
 
2020-09-30 3:32:28 PM  
They'll fix it for the next poll so Trump will show a "Shocking and amazing gain of 6 polls after his amazing debate performance."  They won't remember to fix their numbers until the last 2 or 3 polls before the election.

Rasmussen is the only poll that accounts for Republican voter suppression and tampering. If they are good, they are allowed to also participate.

Good thing for Trump that suckers and losers can't participate (but their friends and relatives can).

Eh. This is what Rasmussen does, though: large, quick drops, and slow but steady rises. On their own website, they'll report "Trump approval rises" more often than "Trump approval drops."

Albert911emt: Isn't Rasmussen the one that usually skews republican, and is almost always wrong?


It's "almost always wrong" because they generally don't agree with the closed-mind liberal mind set. But when they do agree, it's the best pollster ever.
 
2020-09-30 3:40:32 PM  
Hey, hey hay now. Don't pile on subby. Whenever a pollster calls my landline (long story)  I answer and say there are 18 people living in the house, we are hispanic, and we are voting for Tantrump.

The poll does not include responses to Tuesday evening's first presidential debate.

Ras routinely moves toward the pack as we get closer to the election.  That way they can say "called it."

They can be accurate when they want to, but chose not to, for political reasons.

Scum,

It's always skewed 4-5 points towards Republicans.

I sort of feel like Rasmussen polls are how the Donor Class of Derp gently chastises or rewards trump as they deem appropriate

Quick Fark Poll -

How many Trump signs have you seen this year vs 2016. Am I the only one who isn't seeing ANY?
I've only seen 2.

Now does this take into account the debate performance?  I smell popularity bump!  Especially among the proud crowd.

Rasmussen traditionally starts lining up more with the polling average in the weeks just before an election, so that they can claim they "got it right" or were close. It's the rest of the year that it exists just to make Republicans feel good.

I drove by one in south central CT and thought about ripping it down, but then no one will know who the asshole is.

Trump getting more popular among the demographic that was already going to vote for him isn't a gain.

Yes, they consistently skew badly then right before the election magically publish a poll or two that now aligns with the other pollsters and reality at the exit polls.

Rasmussen's final poll in the 2016 cycle was actually pretty close to the actual vote.  They had Hillary winning the popular vote by 1.7%, and the actual number was 2.1%.

If Rasmussen is reporting a massive deficit for Trump, he's pretty much farked at this point.  The debate last night isn't going to help him at all.

I saw a number of houses on the way in to work today who no longer had Trump signs in their yards this morning.  Either ANTIFA had some sort of organized overnight raid, or the owners took them down after watching Trump bray and bully his way through the debate last night.
