A few weeks ago we learned that Rasmussen was in the tank for the Republican right and those radical tea party activists. Rasmussen continued to show falling support for President Obama and his policies and naturally that can’t be correct. The criticism doesn’t seem to have forced Rasmussen to adjust it’s methodology. Worse, it now seems the Gallup has joined Rasmussen in this bias by reporting negative results. New polling released today paints a pretty ugly picture of public opposition to Obamacare. (Click the thumbnail below for a larger image.)
Certainly such data must be biased. By all means, Harry Reid should continue to push the health care bill in the Senate. The data coming out of Rasmussen can’t possible be correct.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Nevada finds Reid earning just 36% of the vote against his two top Republican challengers. That’s a seven-point drop from 43% a month ago. Reid, who is seeking a fifth term, received 61% of the final vote in 2004.
One can only imagine how foolish these pollsters will seem this November when the public lovingly embraces the incumbents in Washington.
