Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Democrats: Rasmussen’s poll, and not our socialist agenda, is why we’re losing right now

Way to shoot the messenger, guys.  But hey, if that’s what makes you feel better about the impending whitewash you’re gonna get at the polls this year, then so be it.  Excerpt:

Democrats are turning their fire on Scott Rasmussen, the prolific independent pollster whose surveys on elections, President Obama’s popularity and a host of other issues are surfacing in the media with increasing frequency.

The pointed attacks reflect a hardening conventional wisdom among prominent liberal bloggers and many Democrats that Rasmussen Reports polls are, at best, the result of a flawed polling model and, at worst, designed to undermine Democratic politicians and the party’s national agenda. …

While Scott Rasmussen, the firm’s president, contends that he has no ax to grind — his bio notes that he has been “an independent pollster for more than a decade” and “has never been a campaign pollster or consultant for candidates seeking office” — his opponents on the left insist he is the hand that feeds conservative talkers a daily trove of negative numbers that provides grist for attacks on Obama and the Democratic Party.

Don Quixote just called to say what a stupid idea this is.

Considering how accurate Rasmussen’s polls turn out to be when election time rolls around, and considering that the MSM’s polls oversample Democrats by double-digits and even those polls show the Dems’ support plunging, I can certainly understand why the left is worried.  However, their ire is a tad bit “misdirected”, to say the very least.

Exit question: Considering how well the White House’s war on Fox News went (and by “well”, I mean “horribly badly”), why does the Democrat Party really want to go down this road?

  1. Do you think the democrats would try changing the subject and get people to blame the polls and not the fact that ALL the democrats disregarded the people’s wishes about healthcare? The democrat politicians showed America who’s boss and to h#ll with those Tea Parties!
