This one's a couple days old, but it still deserves to be mocked. And yes, it's by the GOP's favorite polling firm, Rasmussen, which seems to have a patent on asking really dumb, and misleading, polling questions designed solely to generate dubious "buzz."
Behold the latest [emphasis added]:
The good news for Senator Ben Nelson is that he doesn't have to face Nebraska voters until 2012.
If Governor Dave Heineman challenges Nelson for the Senate job, a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows the Republican would get 61% of the vote while Nelson would get just 30%.
That's right, Rasmussen is now polling hypothetical election match-ups that may or may not take place 33 months from now. I believe in the polling industry the Rasmussen survey would be what's known as "utterly useless."
UPDATED: Turns out lots of people have problems with Rasmussen's work.
