  • Is It As Close As That?

    For most of 2012, I maintained that Mitt Romney would lose to Barack Obama. Only after President Obama's first debate did there seem to be a glimmer of hope. After that debate, polling moved in Romney's direction. Conservatives had hope. As we now know, much of the polling in 2012 was wrong. There were some great pollsters. The IBD/TIPP poll, the Reuters/Ipsos poll, the Pew Poll, and others were spot on. But many pollsters, including the most prominent pollster of all, Gallup, were left with black eyes. After the election, Scott Rasmussen left his own eponymous polling firm. The Rasmussen...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | Friday, October 05, 2012 | Scott Rasmussen
    The first presidential debate of 2012 is now behind us. The reviews suggest that many were surprised at how well Mitt Romney did and how weakly President Obama performed. The Instant Polls conducted by CBS and CNN showed Romney as the big winner. In fact, CNN found that Romney emerged with the largest advantage from any debate since they began the instant debate poll three decades ago. This leads to two questions. The first is: How much of a difference will it make? As I noted last week, debates rarely have a major impact on a campaign, but a small...

  • Health Care Law Has Already Lost in Court of Public Opinion

    Rasmussen ^ | 6/28/2012 | Scott Rasmussen
    Thursday, June 28, 2012 A week after President Obama’s health care law was passed, 54% of voters nationwide wanted to see the law repealed. Now, as the Supreme Court is set to issue a ruling on the law’s constitutionality, the numbers are unchanged: 54% want to see the law repealed. In polls conducted weekly or biweekly for over two years since the law's passage in March 2010, the numbers have barely moved. In fact, for more than a year before the law was passed, a similar majority opposed its passage. The dynamics have remained the same throughout as well. Most...

Support for Republican Dan Maes slipped again, and he now stands at 12 percent, Rasmussen reported. Ever since former GOP Congressman Scott McInnis’ candidacy imploded, Hickenlooper, the Democratic nominee and Denver mayor, has been in the lead in the governor’s race. However, he has generally remained in...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | October 9, 2009
    Most members of the Senate Finance Committee were relieved this week to find that their health care reform plan will cost under $900 billion over the next 10 years and is actually projected to bring the federal deficit down by $81 billion. But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most voters continue to favor middle class tax cuts over spending more money for health care reform. Thirty-three percent (33%) of voters say new spending for health care reform is more important. But 54% rate middle class tax cuts as the priority over more health care spending. Thirteen...

    In spite of the Pro-Obama media’s 24/7 propaganda blitz, all positive Obama all of the time, there is developing a disconnect with the image that Obama image machine is trying to project and what the public is actually seeing in reality concerning the Obama federal budget, the weaken Obama economy and the Obama Democrat $787billion dollar stimulus bill passed by Democrats and Obama. It would appear that Obama is now being judged on his actual words and deeds. rather than his lofty promises and utopian socialist goals.(see story)

    In early October, as the meltdown of the financial industry gained momentum following the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 59% of U.S. voters agreed with Ronald Reagan that “government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.” Since then, the stock market has fallen roughly 3,000 points, millions of jobs have been lost, nearly a trillion dollars has been spent so far to bail out the financial industry, an additional $787-billion government stimulus package has been approved, and a new president has taken office who has proposed spending billions and...

    Washington is the latest state to show a strong western surge for John McCain since he added Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the Republican ticket. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Washington finds Barack Obama still ahead, but barely. It’s Obama 49%, McCain 47%. A month ago, Obama was up by twelve percentage points. Recent polls have shown McCain gains in Montana, New Mexico and North Dakota. Among Democrats, Obama now attracts 83% of the vote, down six points from last month. However, the big change comes among unaffiliated voters who now favor McCain by a 48% to 43%...

    From Rasmussen Reports on February 9: "… polling since Mitt Romney suspended his campaign shows John McCain leading Mike Huckabee 55% to 24% in the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination. McCain also leads Huckabee 724 to 196 in delegates and there is no viable path to the nomination for Huckabee. As a result, Rasmussen Reports will no longer conduct daily tracking polls of the race for the Republican Presidential nomination." From Rasmussen Reports on February 10: "In the race for the Republican Presidential Nomination, Mike Huckabee had a good day on Saturday. He won the caucuses in Kansas handily,...
