During the last two months of the 2004 election, I was going, more often than not, to a polling site called "Rasmussen Reports" for my polling

Rasumssen was tops, with 24 states polled and predicted during the last week of the election -- and every one was called correctly.

(i.e., more accurate) than any other live pollster, including Zogby, Gallup, and Mason-Dixon.
An interesting article by Slate; and I recommend both it and the Rasmussen Reports site ( www.rasmussenreports.com...
