Democrats Attack Rasmussen for Their Low Poll Numbers

Politico reports:

Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency

Well, if they’re going to attack Scott Rasmussen, they better attack USA Today, Washington Post, Quinnipac, Pew, Fox, Gallup,, CNN, WSJ/NBC, more Wall Street Journal, Tarrance-Battleground, Real Clear Politics, et al. Shall I go on?

Hmm, but they had no problem with Rasmussen’s figures when the polls were about Bush’s falling numbers


New Missouri Polling Data Shows McCaskill Tanking

Couple this with the below from Survey Missouri:

Missouri is one of a twelve states that has a Senator from each party.   Reflecting on a year when monumental reforms have been proposed, Missourians were asked which Senator more closely represents their values and beliefs in Washington, DC.

  • Kit Bond                   58%
  • Claire McCaskill        29%
  • Neither                     13%

The United States Senate has currently scheduled a Christmas Eve vote on the Health Care Reform bill.  Missourians were asked, regardless of how they feel about the proposed reforms, whether they agree with the Christmas Eve vote or did they think the legislation should be considered after the first of the year.

  • Agreed with rushing the bill through by the end of the year.        23%
  • Think they should slow down and revisit the issue after the first of the year.     72%
  • Had no opinion of the timing of the vote.   5%

In this week’s poll, 72% of Missouri residents overwhelmingly support slowing the process down.  This coincides with last weeks poll that showed that 61% of Missouri voters oppose the current Health Care bill.

Are you listening, Claire McCaskill?

“Three senators came up to me just now on the (Senate) floor, and said, ‘Now we understand what you did. We’ll be seeking this funding too’,” Nelson said.

– Parker Griffith switches to the GOP thus prompting the question: “Is there room for moderates in the Democratic Party?”

– This health care legislation with be Obama’s “mission accomplished.” Heh.

– Yes, President Obama has done so much to really raise the United States’ level of respect around the world.

Another day, another low poll for Obama.

Another poll to add to the laundry list of polling data that already shows this and has shown this for months:

Legislation without representation.
