Rasmussen Reports™: The Most Comprehensive Public Opinion Data Anywhere

Quote:
If the 2012 presidential election were held today, President Obama and possible Republican nominee Mitt Romney would be all tied up at 45% each, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

The president, seeking a second four-year term, beats another potential GOP rival, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, by six points – 48% to 42%.
Anybody see this? Funny.

yes...Rasmussen called 1000 people....500 are Reps, 300 are Dems and 200 are Independents...what do you expect

The Democratic Party has the most registered voters of any party as of 2004, with 72 million voters....by 2008 thats probably around 80million

i dont...i am just saying
if you want accurate results, you need to ask more Dems, since they have the most registered..than Reps and Independents come in 3rd...

If this poll had a 1000 people..it should be 390 Dems, 330 Reps, 280 Independents.

In June, 38.9% of American adults considered themselves Democrats. That’s down half-a-point from last month.

As for the GOP, 32.2% now claim an affiliation with the party. That’s down four-tenths-of-a-point from a month ago.

The number of unaffiliated adults grew from 28.0% to 28.9%.
These are the numbers he uses for his polls.

Well, would you look at that? Exactly what he is using!

Next excuse?

My God. Romney or Palin? THOSE are the GOP choices for 2012?

Look for Obama to pitch a near-shutout.
