    For some reason Rasmussen always low-balls Paul by ~4 points giver or take 2 or 3 as compared to other polls. I seem to recall Rasmussen doing the same in 2008, where Paul always outperformed Rasmussen predictions at the actual voting booth by 3-4 points too. I'm guessing it's something about Rasmussen's methodology that tends to exclude Paulers.

    You had me worried with that title. It's not any big deal. Rasmussen has always polled Ron lower than the other polls. They have a very tight screen for "likely voters." They only poll people who have voted in previous caucuses. So basically, Ron is getting 20% of the vote of people who have voted in previous caucuses. But when you add new voters on to that total, Ron's numbers will be quite a bit higher.

    It's not that new, it's a week old. I think it was already talked about.

    Rasmussen has always had a bias and underpolls Ron compared to other polls. Plus I learned long ago not to take their polls at face value, especially in R vs D races where they constantly overpoll the Republican candidate.

    Rasmussen is a propagandist. You need at least one fake poll in order to commit vote fraud. Then the pundits can point to that poll and say "look. it isn't fraud".

    5% Bias rule by FOX NEWS Corp pollster Scott Rasmussen.

    Roger Ailes sees to it that Scott Rasmussen is rewarded well for "Steering the Public".

    Regardless of any of this, we need to be fighting in Iowa as if we were ten points behind! There are still lots of phone calls to be made in the Phone From Home program, and we need to make sure we can support the "Christmas with Ron Paul" folks in Iowa in any way we can!

    Ron went up from their last poll, so his RCP average went up. By RCP average Ron is ahead, but realistically, the margin is so narrow, and Mitt's machine is so efficient, we better not be taking anything for granted.

    That poll actually brought Paul's RCP average up higher.

    Rasmussen can't be used as a trusted poll source. As others have said they're part of the propaganda machine.

    Campaign like you're behind in New Hampshire. The NeoCon fascists are pulling out all their heavy guns. With a week to go we need to deploy a counter punch. We have to drop the bomb, its now or never. Let all the world know why we are kicking these fascist NeoCon Progressives out of power and out of the GOP once and for all. Show them that we are an unstoppable stampede and that the sun has set on the era of NeoCon Progressives and the Federal Reserve Mafia.

    "Here is my advice as we begin the century that will lead to 2081. First, guard the freedom of ideas at all costs. Be alert that dictators have always played on the natural human tendency to blame others and to oversimplify. And don't regard yourself as a guardian of freedom unless you respect and preserve the rights of people you disagree with to free, public, unhampered expression." -Gerard K.
