In what way was Bush worse than Obama?

Love some factual reasons.

What?

"Given a choice between Barack Obama and an unnamed Republican, 43% of registered voters say they are more likely to vote for Obama and 40% are more likely to vote for the Republican. This is essentially unchanged from April and February, when voters' preferences were evenly split."

What possible relevance does a poll taken three weeks out have to do with anything?

Was an election held three weeks out to measure the polls?

Only the last one before the election can be measured so it's the only one that matters.

Obviously the NYT is manipulating numbers (unless you believe three weeks was selected for a reason other than cherry-picking numbers) to present a false picture while accusing Rasmussen of doing the same.

What the NYT did is speculation at best with no objective, verifiable proof of anything.
Why were SUSA, and PPP so accurate in comparison then?

For the same reason a broken clock is correct twice a day.

Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™


After climbing several points following Osama Bin Laden's death, BO seems once again drawn like a moth to the flaming sh*t heap of failed presidents. The freebie approval points provided by the brave men and women of our armed forced and intelligence agencies as well as past leadership of President Bush appears to be shaping up as a short-lived exercise in misassigned credit.

Probably should have waited to shoot the campaign commercial at ground zero.
The thing about rasmussen is they love the GOP and so cant be trusted.
