A Counterpoint on the Rasmussen Iowa numbers…..

From  desmoinesdem over @ MyDD.com…….

Scott Rasmussen released a new poll of the Iowa governor and U.S. Senate races today. Rasmussen surveyed 500 “likely Iowa voters” on February 18.

Given Rasmussen’s usual “house effect” favoring Republican candidates, I expected the numbers to be worse for Democrats than other recent Iowa polling. Instead, they were comparable to last week’sResearch 2000 Iowa poll for KCCI-TV and the Selzer and Co. poll for the Des Moines Register, which was conducted three weeks ago.

Like the other pollsters, Rasmussen found Governor Chet Culver well behind Republican front-runner Terry Branstad. Like Research 2000, Rasmussen found Senator Chuck Grassley above 50 percent against Democratic challengers, but well below Grassley’s usual re-election numbers and even below the numbers Rasmussen found for Grassley in late January.

More details are after the jump.

There’s more…

As a credit to Daniel G…he’s now bracketing his Rasmussen numbers……

Counter- Counterpoint!

From Daniel

I told ya yesterday RAS, Selzer and R2000 have rougly the same Numbers.

Well,

The Dog is very suspicious of Rasmussen Polling BUT I AM very, very suspicious of Research 2000 Polling.

After all most R2000 Polling ARE PAID BY KOS.

  2. I think we can just about call both races for Iowa Governor and United States Senator right now.

    It’s OVER for Culver, who had no business winning the governorship in 2006 only because Vilsack soiled himself and backed out of a 3rd term.
