Rasmussen doing their usual damage control polls.

How is this damage control? He is showing Christie with a solid 4 point lead....exactly the margin I have been saying Christie will win by, 4.

'However, the race may be even closer than those numbers suggest. When voters are asked their initial choice, 38% name Christie, 38% Corzine, and 16% prefer Daggett.'

Say what?! I am not quite sure what rasmussen means here but it would seem at first glance to be a little bit dubious and non-transparent.

They're pushing undecided voters.
'Are you leaning this way or that way?'

John:

They are pushing voters who initially say Daggett, leaving it unclear that is what they have done, not listing the question in their toplines and nowhere give what the actual question was, so that a reader can judge how hard rasmussen has pushed these voters. I do not really have a problem with them pushing undecided or if as a follow-up question they want to know where Daggett's voters might go if they do not vote for him but they should be more clear in what they have done.
