Rasmussen poll

Throw the Bums Out

October 16, 2013

Even as a deal nears on ending the possibility of default (at least for now), a new Rasmussen Poll shows that 78% of Americans want to fire the entire Congress and start over.  Count me among them.  Whether it’s the Democrats and their socialist policies that are trying to redefine America, or the Democrat-lite GOP, [...]

SOTU Anti-Bounce?

January 27, 2011

It remains to be seen where the numbers will play out, but thus far they are not looking good for Barack Obama.  As of Tuesday night, before the State of the Union, Obama had a 52% approval, 47% disapproval rating, with an approval index of -5.  Today, which incorporates 33% of respondents post-SOTU and 66% [...]

Don’t Underestimate Obama

February 2, 2010

Watching the performance of Obama and the Democrats this past year, it’s easy to get complacent and assume that 2010 and 2012 are wrapped up.  What we as conservatives fail to see is that Obama does still appeal to a segment of the population, even if they don’t like his policies.  Case in point:  on [...]

Rasmussen Reports: Scott Brown Within Two

January 12, 2010

Many liberal and conservative blogs love to cherry-pick polls favorable to the candidates they’re rooting for, but I’m proud of the fact that we aren’t one of them.  This website has always recognized reputable organizations such as Rasmussen, Mason-Dixon (the best pollster at the state level) and IBD-TIPP and disregarded the trash.  In following this [...]

Nelson Down 30 in Nebraska

December 29, 2009

Rasmussen Reports has released a poll showing that Democrat Senator Ben Nelson would lose re-election to Republican Governor Dave Heineman by a staggering 30 points if the 2012 election were held today.  Obviously the 2012 election isn’t being held today, but that shouldn’t provide Nelson much comfort. A poll showing a Republican with a healthy [...]

NRSC Epic Fail: Crist and Rubio Tied

December 16, 2009

The National Republican Senatorial Committee, as chronicled here in the past, endorsed RINO Charlie Crist over Marco Rubio, stating that Rubio could not win.  Yet now, in the latest Rasmussen poll, Rubio and Crist are tied in the GOP primary race and both lead Democrat Kendrick Meek in the general election.  The difference between Rubio [...]

Arlen Faces the Specter of Defeat

August 13, 2009

Arlen Specter has taken a political beating lately.  Like other Democrats who are actually brave enough to face their constituents, Specter recently attended a series of town hall meetings where he should have discovered that applying Barack Obama’s government-knows-best philosophy to the greatest health care system in the world isn’t exactly the kind of hope [...]

Is ObamaCare Doomed for Failure?

August 13, 2009

There are increasing signs that ObamaCare is doomed for failure.  The left is getting more and more desperate, as they try to counter the growing insurgency that is rising in this country among Conservatives, Independents, and normal, conservative/moderate Democrats.  People don’t want their health care touched, and they are making their voices heard.  People oppose [...]

Obama Out of the Atmosphere

June 23, 2009

Most Beneficent Exalted High King Barry I is nothing of the sort.  Scott Rasmussen, whose polling is amongst the most trusted in America, has developed the “Presidential Approval Index.”  The PAI gauges the difference between those who “Strong Approve” and those who “Strongly Disapprove” of the President.  Well, yesterday it reached zero.  Here’s the chart [...]

A Little Hope for a Change

February 15, 2009

Though only about a month into the Obama Nation, an early political pattern may be developing:  Obama remains popular, but the Congressional Dems are slipping.  On the eve of Election Day, the generic Congressional ballot gave the Dems a six-point lead in Rasmussen’s poll.  Today they only have a one-point lead, a statistical tie and a consistent downward slide since November 4.  [...]

Grow a Spine for a Ray of Hope

January 30, 2009

Rasmussen Reports has a new poll out showing that only 42 percent of the American people support Barack Obama’s stimulus package. That’s down three points from a week ago. Although the media will not report this lackluster showing for Obama’s plan or the fact that support is dropping with the same zeal they used to [...]

58% of Americans are “Wright” about Obama

May 2, 2008

Stemming the conversation away from Obama and the Democ-”Rat” Race has been tough lately, but this was too good to pass up! Scott Rasmussen released a poll today which attempted to gauge the political fallout from the recent remarks on Obama’s old Reverend Wright debacle.  A whopping 58% of respondents believe that Obama condemning Wright this week [...]

McCain’s Keeping Cool

March 20, 2008

Spring’s only been here less than a day, but the season bodes well for John McCain, who must really like this new Rasmussen poll, which puts him solidly ahead of She Who Must Not Be Named (51-41%) and diminishingly messianic Obama (49-42%).  While McCain goes on international fact-finding missions in Iraq and Israel, looking presidential and meeting world leaders [...]
