Good news for Trump Supporters.
Rasmussen showed on Friday – before the Trump Tapes leaked – Clinton with a 1 point advantage.
On Monday, their 3 day rolling average showed that the leaked tapes pushed Clinton out to her biggest jump yet – a 7 point lead over Republican Donald Trump.
But after his fantastic debate performance on Sunday night, the 3 day average which was taken Saturday and Sunday prior to the debate when the Monday polls were added in, Clinton’s lead was down to just 5 points. Which means that Monday was a good day poll-wise for Trump. It will be interesting to see if this trend continues in Trump’s favor.
In comparing Rasmussen to other polls, Rasmussen seems to keep the Republican and Democrat ratio the same day to day. The rest, have a larger sample of Democrats and they seem to change the number of Democrats polled every time Trump has a “moment”. Of course, this may just be the way the poll came out, or some of the polls may actually be trying to push public opinion rather than measure it (Say it ain’t so!). But there seems to be more coordination than actual scientific polling going on at a lot of polling outfits.
