Bear in mind that the biased Rasmussen polls have a demonstrated 5 point Republican bias.

Obama 49%, Romney 48%

Bear in mind that Rasmussen was the most accurate of the last presidential election.

Yes and no.

Rasmussen's LAST PRESIDENTIAL poll was very accurate. THat says nothing about their DAILY presidential polls at all.

There was a noted 4 to 5 point Republican bias on all the other races that year as well as in 2010.

So when you take compare just the ONE out of greater than a thousand polls, yes, they were accurate.

When you take ALL their polls into account for that election, their accuracy was poor and biased.

If the Huffington Post says it, Bob believes it. Thus his constant remark about Rasmussen and a fictitious 5 point bias.

However, his latest "go to source" is pollster.com which over samples Dems by 7% to 11% and is the only one that is published in the Huffington Post. Of course, the Huff Post only publishes the most reliable data and never twists the truth. B.S. The Huff Post prints verbatum the DNC talking points on a daily basis.

Here are the actual election margins from the battleground states in 2008, along with Rasmussen's poll margins:

Colorado actual: Obama +8.5, Rasmussen: Obama +4 (skewed McCain by 4.5 points)
Florida actual: Obama +2.5, Rasmussen: McCain +1 (skewed McCain by 3.5 points)
Indiana actual: Obama +1, Rasmussen: McCain +3 (skewed McCain by 4 points)
Iowa actual: Obama +9.5, Rasmussen: Obama +8 (skewed McCain by 1.5 points)
Nevada actual: Obama +12.5, Rasmussen: Obama +4 (skewed McCain by 8.5 points)
New Hampshire actual: Obama +9.5, Rasmussen: Obama +7 (skewed McCain by 2.5 points)
North Carolina actual: Obama +0.5, Rasmussen: McCain +1 (skewed McCain by 1.5 points)
Ohio actual: Obama +4, Rasmussen: tie (skewed McCain by 4 points)
Pennsylvania actual: Obama +10.5, Rasmussen: Obama +6 (skewed McCain by 4.5 points)
Virginia actual: Obama +6.5, Rasmussen: Obama +4 (skewed McCain by 2.5 points)
Wisconsin actual: Obama +14, Rasmussen: Obama +7 (skewed McCain by 7 points)

So, the average skew for Rasmussen's polls in the battleground states in 2008 was 4 points toward the Republican candidate, and they skewed toward the Republican in EACH AND EVERY ONE of these polls (an undeniable sign of bias). And in the 2010 midterm elections, Rasmussen's polls were skewed almost 6 points toward Republican candidates, clearly making their organization less accurate and more biased than all of their major competitors.

Rasmussen's obvious flaw is that it "adjusts" the results of Democrats' responses in each of their polls (i.e. reduces them), because they assume that they are constantly oversampling Democrats. But how could they accidentally oversample Democrats in virtually every single poll? That doesn't make sense, especially when on average more people across the nation have identified with the Democrats for decades. Regardless, Rasmussen always reduces the Democrats' total in their polls by 4-6%, which explains why they were so obviously biased 4-6% toward Republican candidates in the 2008 and 2010 election cycles.

If you still refuse to acknowledge that Rasmussen's polls are biased toward Republicans, then you have been SERIOUSLY propagandized by the proven liars at Fox News. They will tell you whatever they need to in order to make you hysterical, because hysterical people are easy to manipulate.

Sludge, go play your games elsewhere.

Upon arival I said it was foggy, you said it was not. I was right you were wrong.

I then wrote that I was taking the shuttle to the car renatal facility. A week later you come back and say there is no Hertz counter at Sea-Tac, it is at a combined car rental facility off site from the airport. Well, DUH. That is what I told you that morning.

I posted pictures of Mt Rainier, the freeis wheel at Fisherman's Wharf, and of the Merry-Go-Round at Fisherman's Wharf.

I was in Seattle. You were no where near that part of the world, and still are not anywhere near Seattle.

You are a lying little troll. Just adimt it and quit badgering me.

With the demonstrated 5 point Republican bias, this is a 6 point Obama lead in Ohio!

For once in your life, document your asinine claim. I see no bias by Rassmussen.
