As the 2012 election season heats up, Creators Syndicate is launching the syndicated column The Rasmussen Report by noted political analyst, author, public speaker and independent public opinion pollster Scott Rasmussen.
Each Thursday starting on January 12, The Rasmussen Report will offer the latest insight into today’s current events, underlying trends and the questions that Americans are curious about.
Today, the public is awash in polls and data — and The Rasmussen Report will be essential reading for those who want to glean the truth behind the numbers. The weekly Rasmussen Report column will bring newspaper readers across the country what Washington’s leading thinkers and power brokers already know: Scott Rasmussen is an authoritative voice in polling and political analysis.
The Wall Street Journal proclaims that “Rasmussen is today’s leading insurgent pollster” and “a key player in the contact sport of politics.” The Washington Post says Rasmussen is a “driving force in American politics.” Influential blogger Mickey Kaus declared, “If you have a choice between Rasmussen and, say, the prestigious New York Times, go with Rasmussen.” Syndicated columnist and noted political analyst Michael Barone calls him “one of America’s most innovative pollsters.”
Scott Rasmussen founded Rasmussen Reports in 2003 as a media company specializing in the collection, publication and distribution of public opinion polling information. In 2008, Rasmussen projected Barack Obama would win by a 52 percent to 46 percent margin, and the final results were 53 percent to 46 percent. In 2004, Rasmussen was within half a percentage point of the actual vote totals earned by both George W. Bush and John Kerry.
