The most accurate American pollsters are the left-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) and right-leaning Rasmussen Reports (RR). Their poll number results are typically not biased, but their questions sometimes are. Rasmussen has teamed up with Fox News. PPP has teamed up with the Daily Kos and the SEIU. In 2008 and 2010, their poll numbers were similar, and ended up being among the most accurate.
Recently, PPP and RR have not had similar poll results. I don't know why. Do you know what's going on? Do you have any theories?
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day.
