Agreed. Something ain't right about those polls. It's called "spin". Sheesh!

Rasmussen is very conservative on immigration issues and other issues. Just check the results of most of their polls...they tend to have conservative outcomes. So your arguments that they would put out a poll on purpose to support the president is mute.

how embarrassing is it for a poll to just have a survey of 1,000 likely voters?

that can only be for propaganda purposes, for the propaganda ministers.

did anyone tell the pollster how many people are actually in this country? (my punky little town has 22,000 people).

i could just survey this town and come up with some different statistics.

So you're going to vote for Romney who would do the exact same thing with Rubio? OK!

But it is rewarding their parents for violating our immigration laws by bringing their kids here and giving their kids amnesty. You know damned well that the next thing that will happen is that they will be petitioning for their parents to be able to remain here also because they will using the "separation of families" thingy as an excuse.

No, we haven't lost this battle and most Americans don't agree with adding 800,000 plus 300,000 more workers to our workforce when jobs are scarce and our economy is bad. As I said, it is all in the wording of the questions posed to the public. For example, who would say we should deport a person who served in our military? The problem is that illegals can't join our military so why would that question be posed?

You don't know that. Romney is merely reviewing Rubio's proposal. Besides, there are other reasons I would vote for Romney rather than Obama. The economy, jobs, our national debt and my objection to becoming a socialist country of which Obama is heading us into to.

I wonder who decided how the questions would be worded? There's a giant clue for you.

the double standard is as follows:

Evidence you provide is truth and in good nature.
Evidence we provide is false and doctored.
