    Rasmussen is still quite a GOP outlier

    Although his poll isn't quite as much of an outlier as he was a month ago. Here are the results of October polls without Rasmussen as opposed to what Rasmussen's latest poll shows:

    Colorado: Rasmussen has Romney by 4 while the non-Rasmussen October consensus has Obama by 0.3%.

    Virginia: With Rasmussen, it's Romney by 2 while the non-Rasmussen October consensus has Obama by 1.3%.

    New Hampshire: Rasmussen shows Romney leading by 2 while the non-Rasmussen October consensus has Obaa by 2.4%.

    The Rasmussen GOP bias in these three states averages 4 percentage points. Facts are stubborn things. And top-notch analysts analyze - they don't just accept stats at face value.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • You are as bottom notch an analyst as is possible, which is why your idiotic predictions for presidential & gubernatorial races based upon total insanity & numerical ignorance are always hilariously wrong.

      Rasmussen is so not an outlier that it's right in the middle of the most recent national polls:

      NPR 10/23 - 10/25 1000 LV 3.1 48 47 Romney +1
      Rasmussen Reports 10/27 - 10/29 1500 LV 3.0 49 47 Romney +2
      Pew Research 10/24 - 10/28 1495 LV 2.9 47 47 Tie
      ABC News/Wash Post 10/25 - 10/28 1259 LV 3.5 49 49 Tie
      Gallup 10/22 - 10/28 2700 LV 2.0 51 46 Romney +5

      Only a complete statistical stupe would consider the most recent & best poll in a fluid situation less meaningful than obviously biased, older polls.

      Just one reason why you are always ridiculously wrong.

      That is the stubborn fact.

      • Here are the latest Ohio polls from ten organizations over the last week or so. Do you see one that appears to be very much out of whack? Rasmussen has Romney by 2 while the other nine average 2.3% in Obama's favor. The 4% or so Rasmussen bias is very much in evidence in Ohio. Facts are stubborn things.

      Then why do you and why should anyone believe you?
