With all due respect, if you are going to put huge post with all red text, you need to give a source....

According to Wikipedia quoting Rasmussen himself, he was raised in Republican household, migrated to dems after Nixon debacle, and now is independent; If you read entire quote, you can see that he really is very likely NOT a democrat.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Rasmussen

~Speaking about his political views, Rasmussen said, “I was brought up loosely as a Republican, but at our family dinner table we talked about the important politics of the New York Giants and the New York Yankees. There was no political discussion in my life growing up. I became a Democrat after Richard Nixon and into the Jimmy Carter era and have been an Independent ever since. I spoke today about how the American people were skeptical about politicians—well, I’m more skeptical. I really do see the core issue as the political class versus mainstream voters. I think that is a much bigger gap than Republican, Democrat, conservative, or liberal.”[2]~
