    I believe that Rasmussen is a professional organization which puts accuracy above all else. But their polls this election were biased towards the Republicans. I expect these problems to be fixed.

    I believe that any problems with polling comes from sampling methodologies, not from trying to shape a political agenda, an argument that generally comes from extremely partisan people. However, the argument that Rasmussen is "the best" pollster, as the other extremely partisan side sometimes maintains, was clearly wrong during this election.

    interesting. I had the same thught his morning looking at the returns especially for Nevada,(but aside from haw and neveada what other races did they blow?)

    Anyway, I expect that ras will explain. they are in this bus. as their livelihood and no one will pay an prg. that is not accurate so they have plenty of impetus.

    Rasmussen did not puff the number of Senate and House GOP pickups. He was right on some and wrong on others.

    According to 538, Rasmussen was wrong much more than most other pollsters.
