    The Right-wing Christian Gallup uses "adults" also and has habitual liar Tramp at 39% today, so Ratmuffin is worthless.

    Gallup has 1,500 in its survey like Ratmuffin.

    10. Just one more thing…..

    “Rasmussen Reports says it was the closest of all major pollsters in predicting the presidential election’s popular vote, pointing to final results posted by RealClearPolitics.

    No other pollster tracked by RealClearPolitics came as close to the final results.
    Rasmussen calls itself most accurate pollster of 2016





    Rasmussen isn’t omniscient….just more accurate. While Rasmussen called the 2016 election for Hillary, 322-216…..

    Consistent with most other pollsters.

    [October 25, 2016...NYTimes gave Hillary 93% chance of winning the election.
    2016 Election Forecast: Who Will Be President?]


    "Clinton is expected to get 332 electoral votes, while Trump is predicted to get just 206, according to the Moody's Analytics model, which is based on three economic and three political factors." Moody's Analytics model predicts big Clinton win





    “Only one polling entity tracked by RealClearPolitics had Trump leading going into Election Day: A collaboration poll between Investor's Business Daily and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence that had Trump leading by two points.

    Most other polls tracked by RealClearPolitics showed Clinton leading by three or four points. The Monmouth University poll showed Clinton leading by six — the furthest off of any poll tracked by RealClearPolitics.”

    You moron, Rasmussen can be accurate in measuring elections by polling only likely voters since polling likely voters for election polls is the most accurate form of polling. But it’s the least accurate for measuring anything but elections since they’re measuring a component which affects all people, not just likely voters. :eusa_doh:

    Exactly how rightarded are you?

    Rasmussen had Hillary up by 2 points 24 hours before the election.

    We have all seen these "man on the streets" shows where people are asked political questions and they,if told a certain tax proposal was Hillarys, they would back it, or if told it was Trumps they wouldn't. The average person on the street has absolutely no idea what is happening politically. And if I were a politician, why should I care? It is the feelings of the actual voters that only matter. As they are the ones that do the electing.

    It's an approval rating by the nation's citizens, and has nothing at all to do with voting or not voting.

    Likely voters is a good metric right before an election

    But in evaluating a sitting Presidents performance it ignores much of the population. Trump is the president of everyone, not just those likely to vote
