How come they do such a better job of predicting the final outcome than the single "unskewed" poll? Seriously, Rassmussen was out performed by at least a half dozen polls on the RCP (and by the RCP average) in the 2008 national voting. In 2008 Rassmussen's State polls were horrible - and over-estimated Republican support by 4 points across the board. In 2010 - forget about it - Rassmussen got his ass kicked soundly by EVERYbody. Rassmussen over-estimated Repuplican support in the Hawaii Senate race by 40 POINTS Serioulsy, 40 POINTS And yet THIS is the poll that the far right are hanging their hat on???? I swear, they are starting to sound like a cult. "Don't believe your eyes. Don't believe your ears. Don't believe common sense and logic. JUST believe what we tell you to believe"
