Rasmussen Gets It, Do The Politicians?

Found this post sitting in my "Drafts"...apparently I meant to post it before the elections a few weeks ago...

One of the first pages I hit every day is Scott Rasmussen's Daily Presidential Tracking Poll.  I like to see how wavering and teetering the support for Obama is, and where that number sits.

It's an incredible source for keeping track of election data, number crunching and the like.  I'm sure most conservatives know who he is, because conservative voters tend to be informed, while those that vote democrat tend to be, well, you know.  You've seen those a million times.  Liberals usually don't know what those videos indicate.

Anyway, in an article published today Mr. Rasmussen hits on some interesting points.
In the last week of October 2010, Rasmussen Reports again showed Republicans with a nine-point lead on the generic ballot. And tomorrow Republicans will send more Republicans to Congress than at any time in the past 80 years.
Bloggers better than me have already pointed out that the numbers we're seeing are astounding.  While concerned with voter fraud at an epic level, I still have confidence that the GOP will come out with the majority.

While most voters now believe that cutting government spending is good for the economy, congressional Democrats have convinced them that they want to increase government spending. After the president proposed a $50 billion infrastructure plan in September, for example, Rasmussen Reports polling found that 61% of voters believed cutting spending would create more jobs than the president's plan.
