Re: Scott Walker recall...

Remember how the pundits were settled in for a "long, long evening"?  Then the numbers began to roll in from Milwaukee and Waukesha counties... and it was called within an hour or so of the polls closing.  It was a "shocker".
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Playing devil's advocate, what has Rasmussen done lately?

He missed 2010 by quite a lot.

He's not. Mitt will win by a larger margin than that.

On Hannity's radio show, Rass said that final turnout would be Democrat +3.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

and of course 100% of Democrats will vote for O.  NOT

I still think it will be a R+ turnout and there will be a significant D defection percentage.

How was Rassmussen's record in calling the 2010 elections?  I seem to recall someone posting here recently that he wasn't that accurate with those elections.  That matters because this election is very similar to 2010 in its dynamics and the relative levels of enthusiasm, is the mirror image of 2008 - when the momentum and enthusiasm were on Obama's side and the apathy and lethargy on McCain's side - and bears not much similarity to 2004.

Rasmussen's final turnout model is D/R/I of 39/37/24 or a D+2

Here is what I posted in another thread this morning

Using the D/R/I split of 39/37/24 that Scott put out yesterday, here are the raw numbers:

Gov Romney = (11*0.39)+ (86*0.37)+(53*0.24) = 48.83
Pres Obama = (89*0.39)+ (12*0.37)+(38*0.24) = 48.27

Now, let me re-do them with the Governor getting 95% of Republican support and the President thus getting 5% with NO other change

Gov Romney = (11*0.39)+ (95*0.37)+(53*0.24) = 52.16
Pres Obama = (89*0.39)+ (05*0.37)+(38*0.24) = 45.68

In other words: R:52 O:46

Thanks!  It's really great having folks on board who can parse polls and statistics.
