POLL: Rasmussen Round-Up


Three new Rasmussen Reports automated surveys released this week find:

  • Among 1,000 adults, 59% favor Sen. Hillary Clinton's plan to raise taxes on the wealthy if she is elected; 31% oppose (conducted 4/22 through 4/23).

  • Among 800 likely voters, 49% have a favorable opinion of Sen. John McCain, "a dramatic decline from earlier polling" (conducted 4/23 through 4/24).

  • Among 800 likely voters, 57% favor either a firm deadline for withdrawal or an immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq; 35% oppose both (conducted 4/23 through 4/24).

AG:

Any point where the hypothetical match ups such as Obama vs MCCain ends up being about what the end result is in an election. For example, is there evidence that in the primaries in the cycles of Clinton/Bush41, Reagan/Mondale, Ford/Carter, Bush/Kerry etc., there was a point where the match-ups were about the same as they ended up being on election day? If so, is there a trend in past campaigns in this regard?

I have read that where candidates are in the polls May of an election year is about where they end up in Nov.

Thanks!
