    There's a few big reasons why polls aren't normally conducted through telephone surveys, Cities = cell phones being one of the major ones. Not sure why Rasmussen would think that a telephone survey is a reliable poll at this point. If you don't believe me you can ask anyone, left or right, in the polling industry and they'll tell you the same thing.

    Republicans get a 41% while Dems get a 38% with a +/- of 1% according to Rasmussen. That's the second time in 5 years in a weekly tracking poll that Republicans edge Dems. Something tells me you won't be posting it next week when it goes back to normal, but I suppose that will mean that next week "the messiah" is "making every [sic] believe in the change of socialism" by your logic. Throughout the entire campaign you guys tried to selectively use daily tracking poll swings to justify a favorable trend and now your doing it with weekly telephone surveys. Color me bemused.

    Hold it, hold it...

    Be quiet, I'm doin' Math here...


    lets see 52 weeks a year times 5 years minus 2 equals 258

    So the Congressional Democrats lead 258 to 2 over the past 5 years. They're runnin' it up more than the Pats ever did.

    When did BB take over as HC of the DCCC?

    That's why it's so significent, the people are seeing what dems going wild looks like and are beginning to react negativly, it not like the pubbies have done anything. It's just that the left is doing things people don't like...

    well you are certainly very talented when it comes to making deep inferences from weekly telephone surveys.

    Where there is Coke, there is always hope for Pepsi. Or is it the other way around?

    Polls polls polls. Who knows what will happen in 2010. I think the Dems will lose the filibuster-proof majority (which is bad for the country anyway, no matter which side has it), but I don't think it will be a sweep for the (R)s. There's too much general cynicism about both sides right now to make any major shift.

    Actually, according to Gallup, Obama polls quite strongly, even better than Ronnie the Racist.

    Rasmussen seems to be the odd man out in polling, but given state of the Republican Party -- with Tedisco having lost in conservative upstate New York, Specter switching parties, and Snowe saying that although she'll remain a Republican, the Party has left her -- I can't fault you for sifting through the ruins for signs of life.

    What's the difference anyway? Both are terrible. This country is in a world of poop if you ask me. The spending, both federally, and locally, is out of control. There could be some serious problems on the horizon. I hope not, but you can only squeeze people so much.

    Of course PAtters that is an average not the poll at the 100 mark, and certainly Obama started out very strong but his finish at the 100 poll is decidly average. The dems may be taking the hit for their leader who seems to be a charming extremist.
