    Yeah, I've seen comparisons done that give it to IBD/TPP - but none of those include Rasmussen.

    It doesn't matter if you tilt right or left - IF your answer is actually proven correct.
    I cannot find their 2016 polling. ABC/Washington Post and Bloomberg were pretty close on the national results https://www.realclearpolitics.com/ep...nton-5491.html

    Just looking at pages like this one:

    http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/19/th...ording-to-rcp/

    which actually puts it second - and IBD/TPP first.
    (Another lesser known polling firm - PPD - was actually better than THEM).

    I mean, quite a lot were close. It's hard to fault a lot of them. I just don't care for accusations that say if it favors the GOP, it's biased and *wrong*.
    So Rasmussen favors the GOP - but it turned out to be accurate?

    Opinion polling is getting increasingly difficult, especially as people trend away from landlines to cell phones almost exclusively.
    It taints the model when you're stuck with landlines. Frankly, I have no idea how to get ahead of it.

    I vote for who I like. I have my own opinions. Polls don't mean sh1t to me.
    Trump is still President.
    And doing a pretty fair job with no help from either side.

    polling depends on a couple of things ........

    How exactly is the question formed ?
    What neighborhoods are the calling into ?



    are they calling LA County / New York City Area Codes or Rural Idaho and Wyoming

    You have called me names and insulted me, completely without provocation, and in lieu of refuting my point and making one of your own. You have jumped in and insulted me when I wasn't even talking to you and I was in a discussion with someone else. In fact, you've done this repeatedly, and not only with me but with others as well.

    At least you know you'll only have to worry about the little guy over the internet and not in the real world.

    Senate Democrats drug out the hearings as long as possible ........ Schumer even said that was the plan

    Democrats pledge to slow-walk Trump's nomination votes


    I'll grant you Trump Administration is behind in nominations but the Senate Democrats are NOT Helping the situation
