POLL: Rasmussen Minnesota Senate, President


A new Rasmussen Reports automated survey of 500 likely voters in Minnesota (conducted 10/31) finds:

  • Sen. Norm Coleman leads Al Franken (49% to 42%) and edges out Mike Ciresi (46% to 43%) in a statewide general election match-up for U.S. Senate.

I'm curious about others' views of Rasmussen's results. (Sorry if this topic is covered elsewhere.) My general impression of Rasmussen's results are that they almost invariably tilt 2-3% Republican and conservative. Though I don't have the data handy, I believe that Rasmussen's state polls in 2006 almost universally gave GOP candidates a higher percentage of the vote than they actually received.

My questions are:

() Is my impression true? And if so...

() What is the speculation about the basis for this consistent bias?
