I don’t like these internals at all. Also, the sample 39/36/25 is not adding up either. I want to see where the numbers are at mid week.
Romney’s only up 4 with Indies (was up 23 on Saturday). And only has 88% of base?
Historically (even McCain), R candidates get 93% of Republican base. And in this election, it should be even higher.
Also, if you look at crosstabs, Romney’s numbers add up to 50 and Obama’s add up to 48.
Romney: Certain (46) Likely (2) Lean (2) (50)
Obama: Certain (44) Likely (2) Lean (2) (48)
Yet Rasmussen published the top line as 49-47.
What we can assume is that Benghazi has had ZERO impact, unbelievably.
Like I have said before Rasmussen is scared to death that the liberal media will not like him and therefore not mention his poll if Romney is too far ahead. Rasmussen has always been that way. He knows the race is will not be close, but does not have the nerve to say it. And this is the poll that Fox, especially loudmouth O’Reilly will be talking about today, not the Battleground Poll that says Romney in a landslide. 10 to one says O’Reilly starts off his show today saying the race is tightening and this Rasmussen Poll proves it. He’ll then parade out Karl Rove to say the race is not even close, then O’Reilly will argue with him and say if Rasmussen says it’s close, then it is.
O’Reilly is as predictable as the sun coming up.
