I quite enjoy wild swinging! Were they using a tire swing? Those are the best.

Rasmussen had the least accurate polls in 2010 out of the major firms.

Actually even their 2008 polling favored McCain more than the norm throughout much of the 2008 race but they firmed up closer to the rest towards the end of the race, not the other way around.

I think it's funny that Rasmussen has such notoriously inaccurate polls that electoral-vote.com offers a "Rasmussen-free maps" version prominently on its home page.


Oddly enough, the Rasmussen polls commission by Fox News have a lower republican bias than the average Rasmussen poll.

Dang Liberal media and over sampling polls. Its obvious. Who can really believe that in less than a week that Obama would take a lead in the polls in all the battle ground states. Id wager 47% of you would.

Fox News has Obama up by five. Liberal polling conspiracy!!

The way it was presented this morning on the radio was amusing. "A new Fox News poll shows President Obama leading challenger Mitt Romney by five points but has them nearly tied on who is best to lead the economy..."
(A) I'm guessing "nearly tied" means Obama is leading that since they'd have otherwise said "Romney is leading in who is best..."
(B) If the best Romney can do is nearly tied in the one singular thing that was supposed to be the focus of his whole campaign...

Thank God Fox News is no doubt cooking the numbers to depress Republican voter turnout.

I dunno there is one thing I can see Romney doing better than Obama.

Increasing that 47% by another 5-10%.

Trickle down baby!

Considering the small dots for national brands like Fosters, Molson and Becks, I'm guessing any given microbrew is statistically insignificant.

Then have a generic bubble for "Small batch craft brews" and lump them all together.

The only thing I drink on there regularly is Sam Adams, and that's whenever the local package store gets a seasonal variety pack in when we've got a party coming up.

That implies that all are drunk equally by the same partisan make-up.

Smiley: laugh

I laughed at the Budweiser placement because that's what all the Mexicans drink (at least around here). And MGD is my default beer selection. As in "I'm having a beer because it sounds like a good idea at the moment but I don't care enough about beer to order anything more exotic than this."

It's hard to make many meaningful connections in that beer chart, other than that people who vote more often apparently also have more money and/or refined taste, and avoid the shittiest light beers.

They did a restaurant chart also, that has some humorous outliers: http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-feltus-chick-fil-a.eps-20120803,0,570192.graphic
