Rasmussen Poll Data

In Politics on June 16, 2008 at 4:26 pm

Here is where it gets tough for Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party.  Polling companies like Rassmussen are giving polls with the only options for President being Barack Obama and John McCain.   The poll among Arkansas voters show that 8% prefer “some other candidate.”

Why do people give such credence to polling firms?  I remember a class action lawsuit filed by the LPPA and LP candidates Richard Piotrowski and Betsy Summers against Quinnipiac College.  The college accepts federal money for student tuition and is supposed to be unbiased in politics.  Excluding candidates on the ballot constitutes as bias according to the law suit.  I haven’t heard anything about the suit since it was filed.

The longer polls exclude Bob Barr, the harder it will be for him (as well as for downticket candidates.)

 

  1. Yeah, I’m all broken up over it. Poor bobarr, he just isn’t used to this kind of mistreatment.

  2. Yeah, I’m all broken up about it. I guess bobarr isn’t used to such mistreatment. Maybe this will give him even more incentive to go back to the Republican Party.

  3. It’s not just Barr. They probably won’t mention any LP candidates in polls. (Unless their name happens to be “other”)

  4. Of course, if Ron Paul was “some other candidate,” LaBianca and company would likely be discussing how the Jewish Bankers are working with their media gods to keep the Truth of the Gold Standard from reaching the ears of working class Americans… or something.😉

    Hmmm . . . I guess that puts a different spin on the “Barr will get the LP unprecedented media coverage” or Barr is “polling x% and will get the most votes for the LP by far”.

    Too bad that 324 delegates were taken in by this BS. That is, sell out the foundations of the LP (its principles) for the flawed idea that the LP will grow exponentially with a “star power” candidate.

  7. Barr has already fallen from 6% to 2% in the latest NC polling.

  8. LaB, still a little upset hey? Time to move on friend, if not it can make you grow old quickly. Pick a down ticket LP candidate to support wholeheartily and/or come help us with the best protest vote we have BaldWIN2008,com

    Peace Peace Peace! After Nov. 4 you will be needed to help rebuild the Party after the Reformers predictions of millions of votes and dare say even their thoughts of victory are disgraced. No need to be negative now, you will then be blamed for part of the failure. Move on, they won. Now we will see if they can produce. Peace Peace Peace!

  9. An FYI: Bob Barr was included in the latest Zogby poll and all other third party candidates were excluded, except for Ralph Nader.

  10. Everybody is invited to partake in the Vortex Poll found on my website http://www.vortexoffreedom.org
