Only an 8 point gap between Gallup and Rasmussen. Just another day in paradise.

Gallup and Rasmussen diverge periodically. Gallup is still looking at registered voters and still absorbing the fallback from Obama’s post convention bounce (they average over seven days vs. rassmussen’s three days). The important point is that Gallup is heading back towards Rasmussen.

Yep. HUGE gap between the two. One of them is completely wrong. Which one was pressured by administration officials again?

Registered voters may think they are until they get to the polls and find out that the voter fraud laws in some states have kicked in and illegals, felons, and those voting in multiple states have become “unregistered.”

And yes, the GOP should be proud to suppress the votes of illegal voters in the finest tradition of defending the sacredness of the ballot.

They really have you hook, line, and sinker with these manipulated polls. This is on the same mental level as “reality TV”.

Gallup uses a 7-day moving average, Rasmussen uses 3 days. The Gallup number still includes a lot of the post-convention bounce as well as the weekend that undercounts conservatives, libertarians and Republicans. Patience.

Just a thought -

perhaps after being bullied by Axelrod et al,

Gallup is making it blatantly obvious that they have indeed been bullied as some sort of passive resistance.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while President Obama earns 45% of the vote.

That confirms what I was thinking...

those headlines are so over-the-top biased that they are saying

“we can’t do honest polling or else the 0bama admin will come down on us”

Rasmussen had R up by 3 today among likely voters. His important swing state results are all with 2 points.

Obama is still at least 2-3 points too high in Rassmussen polling, he will not get above 42-43% of the popular vote on election day AT BEST.

I had that thought too, but backed off it thinking a publicly held company (?) would be violating fiduciary laws by purposely destroying its own credibility ?

Those headlines are like public fellatio, but worse, if that's possible !

It would be interesting if the SEC would investigate a complaint on Gallup’s fiduciary negligence

and Gallup brought to court the evidence of the intimidation by the government.

Fed/state/local combine have over 10,000 regs which they can hang you with. Take NYT for example. They sell stock shares and they overstated their newspaper circulation by 100 percent on their perspective. Technically GWB could have investigated and charged the CEO of the NYT with fraud and SEC violations. It was never done. If you are part of the establishment inner circle, lots of laws are not enforced if you screw up. However this can also backfire. If you are part of the protected elite you will continue to break laws until some SOB politician decides to rein you in. I think that is what happen to Gallup. Keep pissing Obama off, he will unleash the fed gov on you and Gallup being one of the protected establishment may have scores of serious violations that can be uncovered. Their management knows that thus kowtows.
