Rasmussen Reports™: The Most Comprehensive Public Opinion Data Anywhere

Please read the last part of the article where they explain why the 49% for and 51% against him happened and why they might change to larger than 51% against. Also you can read about why their numbers tend to be different than so many other polls. Very enlightening, even for those who don't want to accept Rasmussen's outcome.

It seems that the daily poll has Obama at -9 for today. However, not so low for the whole week.

Even the Fox News poll has him 55-39...lol and every other poll.

good to see that Rasmussen is fixing the polls and now finally admitting it

Quote:
President Obama’s numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That’s because some of the President’s most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.
so now they can tell into the future and see who will vote in 2012..

and it makes no sense to only count likely voters for approval rating...if a person didn't vote does that mean she/he is not affect by what Obama does and shouldn't have a chance to approve or disapprove of his job

thanks for posting this, i knew Rasmussen was fixing the numbers somehow.

But you still don't know how they are doing that, do you? If you did you would talk to how they are doing that.

Lets see, which people are most likely to vote for him, those who vote or those who don't? Chaps you for them to be reasonable, doesnt it?

Are you saying that the liberal ones that are the rest aren't maybe just a bit skewed? I love the way you try to discredit Rasmussen without any explanation of how bad they are and how they are. Wheeee.
