PostSubject: Beware of Rasmussen "Presidential Approval Index"   7/29/2009, 8:28 pm

Some good points here to use against wingnut kooks ...

The Rasmussen "Presidential Approval Index": Is This Newer Measurement Worth Anything?

Quote :
Mark Blumenthal of Pollster.com said he didn't know of anyone who had previously given this as a prominent "index." "If Obama now has more strong detractors than strong supporters, that is politically meaningful (though contrary to the results of the recent ABC/Washington Post polls, to pick one example)," said Blumenthal. "But to report only those who strongly approve or strongly disapprove of Obama while neglecting mention of the aggregate numbers strikes me as more political spin than analysis."

Charles Franklin of Pollster.com, who is also my former poli-sci professor, said that it "seems misguided" to write off the moderate approvers and disapprovers. And Prof. Alan Abramowitz of Emory University was quite tough on it: "In my opinion, it makes no sense. It assumes that there's no difference between those who just approve and disapprove, that the only opinions that count are strong approval and disapproval, but there' s no evidence to support that claim."

More of your "civility"?
I simply point out and draw attention to polls that are slanted. For whatever reason,Rasmussen has taken a hard right since the election. If you want to continue deluding yourself,much like the brain dead simpletons did last year with Zogby,then be my guest.

Yet, you still refuse to acknowledge the fact that his approval rating is headed down...why not quote the Poll Results that refute that claim...even NBC acknowledges it...you must be bigger than them. Chuck Todd looked like he was going to cry this morning. Maybe the "Beer Party" with racist Gates will get him some points.

I've never denied that Obama's poll numbers are down from their sky high numbers,but if you took the time to study the numbers I posted you'll see that they are still very respectable,with the exception of Rasmussen which has been proven to be skewed. Based on those numbers,if a POTUS election were held today,I believe Obama would still win handily.

I only started this thread because I knew all the wingnut losers would be pointing to Rasmussen as some sort of legitimate barometer,without bothering to look closely at how they were gathering their data. As usual,I was proven correct.

Hey Lois, let us know when Obama's approval numbers get below 50% & the republicans in congress get higher numbers than the Dems.
THEN you will have something to brag about.
You see the MAJORITY of people STILL think republicans suck:
Quote :
Americans continue to prefer a U.S. Congress controlled by the Democratic Party, albeit by an increasingly smaller edge, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

By a 46%-39% margin, those surveyed said they want Democrats to maintain their majority next year—a slightly smaller margin than the 48%-39% margin in April.

The last time more Americans said they wanted Republicans to control Congress was in the October 2002 WSJ/NBC News poll when the GOP had a narrow 43%-42% edge.

Here's the poll that I've found to be most accurate over the years...

http://pollingreport.com/obama_job.htm#Gallup

It's based on a three day rolling average and it's updated every day. Currently, Barack has an approval rating of 53% and a disapproval rating of 39%... He's lost a few points over the last 10 days or so.

My guess is that the recent dip is based on the comments he made about the "Gates incident". I knew that he screwed up as soon as he made them. He's done a good job patching things up with the police, but that hasn't been reflected in the polls so far.

That said, I think it's a huge mistake to ever bet against Obama. He's a very skilled politician, perhaps the best I've ever seen. I'm betting that he picks up a few points over the next couple of weeks. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Heh heh....here's some more bad news for Repubs..We may even pick up a few more seats in 2010...but hey....at least they can still wishfully cling to Rasmussen...

There’s been no surge in GOP voter registration and little evidence that the party brand is experiencing a recovery. Last month, a New York Times/CBS poll reported that the GOP’s favorability ratings remained at a record-breaking low -- 28 percent, down from a high of 59 percent in November 1994.

GOP NOT YET CAPITALIZING ON POLL SHIFTS.... Looking at national polls over the last month or so show a drop off in President Obama's support. Though he remains fairly popular, support has waned over the summer.A new CNN poll shows his approval rating at 56%, down five points from June and seven points from April. Hardly cause for panic, but an obvious trend.

And while the president's detractors will obviously be heartened by the results, there's another trend that's worth keeping an eye on: waning support for Obama is not yet translating into new support for Republicans. That was evident in several surveys last week, and it's also apparent in the new CNN data.

So who is getting blamed for the current economic conditions? The survey indicates that more than four in 10 are pointing fingers at Republicans, with around one in four blaming the Democrats and another one in four saying both parties are equally at fault.

Quote :
"The bad news for the GOP is that they get twice as much blame as the Democrats," says Holland. "The good news for the GOP is that the number of Americans who blame them is now below 50 percent."

Respondents were asked, "Do you think the Democrats or the Republicans are more responsible for the country's current economic problems?" A 44% plurality blame the GOP, while 23% blame Democrats. The margin was slightly worse in May, but it nevertheless suggests Republican efforts to pin a struggling economy on the majority aren't having the desired effect, at least not yet.

More evidence that Planet Wingnuttia's favorite pollster is in the tank for them.....

Rasmussen Caught With Their Thumb On The Scale

During this year, the nightly polling and political wrap-up has always been rife with comments from Kossacks skeptical of any polling done by Rasmussen Reports.

Over the years, RR has been one of the most prolific pollsters in the game, and despite the fact that it is an open secret that founder Scott Rasmussen's political proclivities are well to the right of center, their numbers on campaigns have been on the fairway more often than not.

This year, however, it is hard not to go to their webpage and sense an agenda. Apparently, other people in the blogosphere have noticed it, too. Greg Sargent for example
Quote :
Rasmussen Reports, which often skews its presentation of polling for conservative media pickup, has a funny new poll that’s clearly designed to suggest public opposition to Dems going it alone on health care.

...Take a look at the question wording:

Suppose that Democrats agreed on a health care reform bill that is opposed by all Republicans in Congress. Should the Democrats pass that bill or should they change the bill to win support from a reasonable number of Republicans?

Indeed, as Sargent points out, the trick here employed by Rasmussen is to use the term "reasonable number" of Republicans. "Reasonable" is a very powerful word here, and carries with it the unspoken implication that a bill without ANY Republican support would be, somehow, unreasonable.


What is consistent about Rasmussen's coverage of the health care debate is their incessant desire to frame the debate in ways designed to denigrate both the Congress and President Obama. One of the most insipid examples of this was a survey earlier in the week in which Rasmussen reported that two-thirds of voters believed that they understood the health care reform proposal as well, or better, than President Obama.

What a hypocrite. When Nobama was running for president you were quoting Rasmussen Polls day in and day out, on both boards...now that your boy is on the decline, you have to blame somebody else. Just like calling Michael Jackson's death a murder. I call it a suicide.

Anyone else notice that our resident cartoon character completely ignored the content of the article,was unable to refute anything in it,and instead decided to post a few lines of totally off topic gibberish like she usually does?

As to Rasmussen,the fact of the matter is that in Presidential election polls they've been extremely accurate and don't resort to tactics that have been outlined previously in this thread.

This reminds of last year when all the dead end wingnuts started drinking Zogby kool-aid showing McCain leading Obama. This is no different.

But, as soon as the numbers tank, you blame the polls...all of the polls...not the person. I remember when you were slobbering all over the screen, quoting Rasmussen numbers, calling people idiots, and all that crap...Now Rasmussen is slanting the numbers...Think it might be your boy?

Look at these poll numbers since the inaugaration and explain to us why Rasmussen has been almost always showing the lowest approval ratings.

Next you can try and refute anything that I posted in the articles about Rasmussen. I won't be holding my breath. :bball:

Sorry Art...unlike you, I have much better things to do than to dig out your posts. But I am sure everyone remembers you slobbering all over the place when the polls were praising your boy...you're just too damned racist to admit he's on the way down...and Rasmussen does show that 97% of you African-Americans do think Nobama is doing a great job. And why not, each and every one probably gets some sort of handout.

Artie is black? It doesn't matter one way or the other to me, but I honestly didn't know that.

In any case, it's absolutely ludicrous to call Artie a racist and then turn around and say that "each and every African-American" gets "some sort of handout." Do you honestly believe this tripe? Because that's just blatant racial stereotyping.

Give me a break...I am racial stereotyping? You clowns have been whining about my European roots for about a year...Where the hell do you get off? You should proofread some of the shit you post. And try not to play dumb. There are about five of you that bring it up. I ignore it, but make one remark and BAM it's in my lap...advce to all of you: Go to hell...

Yeah, well I can't speak for anyone else, but I know for a fact that I personally have never said anything at all about your "European roots." Stuff like that is totally immaterial to me. So spare me all the vitriolic ranting.

I asked you a simple question. Do you actually believe that "each and every African American" gets some sort of "handout," or not?

This reminds of last year when all the dead end wingnuts started drinking Zogby kool-aid showing McCain leading Obama. This is no different.
But, as soon as the numbers tank, you blame the polls...all of the polls...not the person. I remember when you were slobbering all over the screen, quoting Rasmussen numbers, calling people idiots, and all that crap...Now Rasmussen is slanting the numbers...Think it might be your boy?

Look at these poll numbers since the inaugaration and explain to us why Rasmussen has been almost always showing the lowest approval ratings.

Next you can try and refute anything that I posted in the articles about Rasmussen. I won't be holding my breath. :bball:

Sorry Art...unlike you, I have much better things to do than to dig out your posts.

In other words,you've painted yourself into another corner and I've stymied you once again.

But I am sure everyone remembers you slobbering all over the place when the polls were praising your boy...you're just too damned racist to admit he's on the way down...and Rasmussen does show that 97% of you African-Americans do think Nobama is doing a great job.

Have I been out in the sun too long this summer,or did Orly Taitz find my Kenyan birth certificate? :rolfcry:

Which white supremicist hate site did you learn that at? :barf:

Artie is black? It doesn't matter one way or the other to me, but I honestly didn't know that.

In any case, it's absolutely ludicrous to call Artie a racist and then turn around and say that "each and every African-American" gets "some sort of handout." Do you honestly believe this tripe? Because that's just blatant racial stereotyping.
Give me a break...I am racial stereotyping? You clowns have been whining about my European roots for about a year...Where the hell do you get off? You should proofread some of the shit you post. And try not to play dumb. There are about five of you that bring it up. I ignore it, but make one remark and BAM it's in my lap...advce to all of you: Go to hell...

You're the one who brought up your 'European Upbringing" in the first place. The fact that you have a serious problem remembering what you post is not our fault.

Now you deny that you're black? (Doubt we'll get an answer)

So the fact that I was born and raised in Malta is grounds for bottom dwellers like yourself to attempt to use it against me? I doubt it. I am proud of where I came from. In fact, I visit there every other year.
