    Rassmusen was dead on the last Presidential election but in reality they are all meaningless.

    I'm interested in seeing local polls from swing states.

    WABC News reported that the Tea Party was to blame for NBC's bad polling

    I like Yahoo comments to articles that are not facebook controlled to comment on. Yahoo has both.

    The facebook ones are obviously heavy Obama.

    The regular Yahoo comments are usually heavy against Obama.

    Yahoo is in the tank for Obama.

    Seems a good indication of peoples thoughts.

    It's an NBC/WSJ poll.

    Is the Wall Street Journal "liberal" now?

    Rasmussen, Gallup, Quinnipiac...........

    Avoid all media polls - NBC, ABC, FOX, etc. Poorly done and often slanted.

    Look for those who poll LV. They are much more reliable than RV.

    That's not the slightest bit true.
