    Not.


    RCP Average..................47/44.4..Obama +2.6

    Gallup Tracking ..............48/44....Obama +4
    Rasmussen Tracking.......44/47....Romney +3
    CNN/Opinion Research....49/46....Obama +3
    Newsweek/Daily Beast....47/44....Obama +3
    Democracy Corps (D)......49/46....Obama +3
    FOX News......................45/40....Obama +5
    NBC News/WS Journal.....47/44....Obama +3


    But I guess FoxNews and the Wall Street Journal are just liberal media propaganda outlets...

    If you cast out the outlier, Obama is up by 3.5%

    Of course, none of this really means much at this point in the game.

    I just think it's fun to point out how much of an outlier Rasmussen is, as he is just about all the time.

    Don't much really care.

    The point is for all the posters that claim Rasmussen is "the most accurate", as was made clear in the title of the thread.

    Rassmussen is the only pollster that screens for likely voters, over those only registered or just adults who may or may note even be registered.

    But I think you already knew that.

    uh huh.."tad" selective aren't we?

    were where you when gallup had obama down 5 and ras had him flat in popularity etc?

    you do know there is a big difference between expectations results, ala RV and LV sampling this far out from the election....? right?

    and please, media polls are not quotable imho, I have always had that stance and said so, here at this forum (too)

    last but not least, please post the pollsters with better records say over the last 6 elections, thx in advance.


    or how about this-

    Rasmussen Reports 6/18 - 6/20 1500 LV 3.0 43 47 Romney +4
    Gallup 6/14 - 6/20 3050 RV 2.0 45 47 Romney +2
    Bloomberg 6/15 - 6/18 734 LV 3.6 53 40 Obama +13

    any remarks?

    Must be a good thread since two wingnut mods are grinding on it.

    One things I have learned in over 45 Years of watching this shit. The Polls don't mean a god damn thing, Especially this early in the Race. Anyone can conduct a poll and word it so the out come favors what they want to hear guys.

    If you are going to pay attention to polls, look closely at the sample size, Whether it was RV or LV or just adults ect. If they asked Party affiliation on the poll so you can see if it was an even amount or not.

    Then Finally still take anything it says with a Grain of Salt.

    only one poll is going to matter, that's Election day.

    Polls are very important - especially to candidates who must allocate campaign resources.
