    Are they that desperate? That naive? That ignorant? That much in the bubble?

    Are they punch-drunk on the Kool-Aid?

    I mean, this is ridiculous now.

    What. Is. The problem...............................??

    If you're not concerned about it, why do you care?

    Because Rasmussen has proven to be the most accurate?

    I personally don't care about polls.

    The polls are using data from the 2008 election to determine the appropriate party "weight"....

    Most realize that being part of history was, in itself, a motivation for many to vote in 2008.

    That incentive does not exist now.

    When? They have always leaned hard to the right, that's why the right wing trolls worship them.

    They are doing it for one of 3 reasons:

    1. They really are that stupid.

    2. They know it's bullshit, but it makes them feel better to pretend.

    3. They know it's bullshit, but they enjoy the annoyance it creates.

    Lean hard to the right because they're the only ones that don't drastically oversample democrats?

    Rasmussen is an admitted conservative...so to many who despise conservatives, they take that as meaning that he "cheats to the right" with his polls.

    However....they are wrong with that assessment.
