Rasmussen Pretends Joe Kennedy Does Not Exist

I've blogged about the race of Joe Kennedy, a Libertarian versus Democrat Martha Coakley and Republican Scott Brown. With the way third party candidates are treated all over the country, this headline from Independent Political Reports, Rasmussen Pretends Joe Kennedy Does Not Exist is not a shocker...

Despite Rasmussen's tag line of "if it's in the news it's in our polls" -- This telephone survey of 500 Likely Voters in Massachusetts was conducted by Rasmussen Reports January 4, 2010. Which means the additional story related to this poll, is not many were polled, which is also typical. The polling data also does not share the breakdown of political parties, if as an example, the majority of those polled were Republicans or Democrats instead of those who are non-affiliated voters (which the majority of Americans are not either party) it gives you a skewed poll.
