    RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

    RCP average: Obama +1.6 over Romney. Rasmussen is, as usual, a right-tilted outlier.

    This illustrates once more that Rasmussen should not be trusted more than two weeks before the election. He has two different polling modes: "set-a-narrative" and "get-it-right." When taking polls long before the election, he skews his methods and especially his "likely voter" screens to produce results tilted towards the result he wants to encourage. A few weeks before the election, he switches to "get-it-right" mode, takes a poll that is intended to reflect reality, and is then highly reliable. He does that in order to earn the reputation for accuracy that allows him to set narratives in his more usual polls.

    So I'll believe a Rasmussen poll starting in mid October 2012. I don't believe it now.

    Looks like Ron Paul is leading in Iowa.

    Look on the bright side. In a year Barry will be packing his bags to return to his Community Agitator job but with a resume now better suited for it than the one he brought to his Washington gig.

    I'm not a Romeny fan but I'll take him over Obama any day. Romney at least has some kind of record that doesn't involve voting Present.

    Guess ACORN will be back to work in Penn and Ohio. I still look foward to O'Bozo making speeches to mass crowds in western/mainland Ohio and Penn. Can you imagine what would happen if Obama only draws miniscule crowds next year? will the MSM lie and photp-shop crowds of 3000 ?
