Up 4 with indies? Where was he about a week ago?
What do you think the internals mean? Indy number scares me as does the asian hispanic right track wrong track.
Very interesting... That Indy number is scary. But, that could well be a Sandy bounce that will do away quickly.
Sure hope so, anyway.
THANKS Gov Christie!
He has Wisconsin, for example, tied at 49. Do I assume that he is applying his 2%, which I presume to be a national number, equally in each state? Is there any reason to believe that that is a valid procedure? I note that he has Republicans +3 on congressional preference and it seems anomalous to me that the overall preference would be +2 Democrat. Finally, what does this measure, merely a preference expressed in general terms by the electorate or is Rasmussen predicting turnout?
Am I wasting time concerning myself about these preference numbers when, as you point out, the approval numbers are far more predictive?
