Palin did is trusted less than CONGRESS?!? And Romney is trusted less than her?

The Pelosi numbers are also interested. Apparently far more people trust Congress and the Democrats than they trust Pelosi. Do they not realize that Pelosi is the leader of Congress and the Democrats within it?

Sjt,

This poll is an online poll, so it goes into the trash.

I've said time and time again that Rasmussen polls are conducted to achieve certain desired results and that it's only close to an election day that his numbers gravitate towards reality.

This particular poll shows that Romney is trusted less compared to Obama. So, which people are Rasmussen polling at all? His polls are far far way off from the crowd and I believe are intended to make Romney look better than the other Republican contenders in the eyes of the Christian conservatives and make the case that he's the only one to make a serious threat to Obama. His polls are therefore designed to help move Christian conservatives, who have remained unmoved to his cause and resisted his candidacy, to his corner atleast.
