    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There are a couple of polls out here today, and they greatly conflict with each other. They are about Obama's approval numbers. Now, the first poll is from Reuters. It's a Reuters/Ipsos poll, and according to this poll, approval for Obama has crashed. He's down to 43% approval in the Reuters poll. The other poll that's out is from Rasmussen. The Rasmussen poll has Obama's approval at above 50%. Now, there was another poll. It was Gallup earlier this week that had Obama's approval number at 48%. It was the first time he was under 50% in...

  • Newt Trails Obama by Only 7 Points in Latest Rasmussen Tracking Poll (or It's Not Over Yet).

    In the lastest Rasmussen tracking poll, which has had no media coverage, Newt Gingrich is trailing Barack Obama by only 7 points nationally. Barack Obama is leading Mitt Romney by only 5 points in Florida. These poll results are being withheld by the RNC and the MSM, who want no positive news about Newt in circulation, especially the fact he is only behind Obama by 7 points nationally. The RNC establishment’s current strategy remains: Publish no poll numbers; spread the word that Romney is the nominee; have people vote based on blackout and misinformation expecting Romney to win big; then...
  • Numbers Suggest Santorum Could Be Romney's Worst Nightmare

    In a campaign defined by Republican reluctance to embrace Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum has emerged as the latest not-Romney candidate to surge ahead. While it's impossible to predict what will happen in this volatile election season, the data suggests that Santorum might be more of a challenge for Romney than earlier flavors of the month. The latest Rasmussen Reports poll of the GOP race shows that Rick Santorum leads Mitt Romney by 12 points, 39 percent to 27 percent. Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are far behind. In and of itself, that's nothing new. The man from Massachusetts has at...

    Seventy-seven percent (77%) of voters nationwide say John McCain's call for a series of ten Town Hall debates is a good idea. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 11% disagree and 12% are not sure. McCain has proposed that the candidates meet once a week in ten different cities around the country. The two men would answer questions from private citizens instead of reporters. Obama's home town newspaper has endorsed the concept as well. The Chicago Sun-Times wrote "forget about holding 10. Do 20 -- or more -- and get going." Ninety percent (90%) of Republicans support...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 30, 2007
    There’s a simple reason the immigration bill being debated by the U.S. Senate is unpopular with voters—the general public doesn’t believe it will reduce illegal immigration. And, in the minds of most voters, that’s what immigration reform is all about. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 16% of American voters believe illegal immigration will decline if the Senate bill is passed. Seventy-four percent (74%) disagree. That figure includes 41% who believe the Senate bill will actually lead to an increase in illegal immigration. If voters had a chance to improve the legislation, 75% would “make changes...

    Rassmussen Reports ^ | March 10 2006
    Republicans in Congress may have successfully distanced themselves from the President on the Dubai Ports issue. Forty-three percent (43%) of Americans say they generally trust Republicans more than Democrats on national security issues while 38% place more trust in the Democrats. That five point advantage for generic Republicans is fairly modest, but is better than the numbers the President has mustered. A separate survey found that 41% of Americans trust Democrats in Congress more than the President on national security issues. Forty percent (40%) have more trust in the President. Interest in the story remains very high. Seventy-two percent (72%)...

    RICHMOND -- Democrats face an uphill battle in their attempt to unseat Virginia Sen. George Allen, a new statewide poll shows. So far, Northern Virginia businessman Harris Miller is the only announced Democrat to seek his party's nomination to challenge the Republican senator on the Nov. 7 ballot. If the election were held today, Mr. Allen would receive 57 percent of the vote, and Mr. Miller would get 27 percent, according to a telephone survey of 500 likely Virginia voters conducted last week by Rasmussen Reports. The poll, conducted after Mr. Miller filed his candidacy, showed 6 percent of voters...

  • Rassmussen has Bush ahead by 4 to 5 Points

    September 6, 2004--We have been flooded with e-mails asking (in varying tones of politeness) why our poll results seem different from those released by Time and Newsweek. There are two basic explanations, one involving our polling data and one involving the newsmagazines. For those who need to know the answer before the explanation, the bottom line is that the President is ahead by 4 to 5 points at this time. That's a significant improvement over the past few weeks, but not a double digit lead. Our current poll (showing the President ahead by just over a point) includes a Saturday...

    Chirac's Brit deaths snub FRENCH President Jacques Chirac delivered a nasty snub to Prime Minister Tony Blair at this morning's EU summit in Brussels. While other European leaders expressed personal condolences to the PM over the deaths of eight Britons in last night's helicopter crash in Kuwait - Chirac was conspicuous by his absence. German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, Irish premier Bertie Ahern and Spain's Jose Marie Aznar went over to Mr Blair at the start of the second day of the summit. Italy's Silvio Berlusconi, Dutch leader Jan-Peter Balkenende, and Denmark's Anders Fogh Rassmussen did the same. "They all offered...
