When reading a Rasmussen poll, remember it relies on an outdated 'Likely Voter' model that overweighs Republicans by about 10-15 points.

D*mn. For one of the most accurate pollsters from 2008, thats quite a bias. Or is it just bias from the poster methinks.

This poll is completely in accurate people in Minnesota hate Tim Pawlenty. His approval rating is absolutely in negative territory. Rasmussen polls have simply been showing unrealistic results lately, like Specter loosing to Toomey by 11.

The Likely voters model is by far the most accurate in the biz. In fact, Gallup recently discussed moving their tracking poll to it or providing both their "adults" metric and a likely voter one.

Rasmussen was the most accurate national pollster in 2008 based on their final pre-election poll. They were at best a middling performer on their state-by-state polls. Conservatives are fond of overstating their significance.
