Several reasons why NBC News's Chuck Todd, The Washington Post and others in the so-called mainstream media consider Scott Rasmussen and his Rasmussen Poll partisan and why FNC and Fox News use their polling so much, is because they're partisan. At least in the sense that they tend to poll heavily Republican or Republican leaning areas and then call their polls national. Right now only Rasmussen and Fox News views the Romney-Obama race as tight. Most of the polls have President Obama with a clear Electoral College lead, because he's leading Mitt Romney in all of the swing states right now. Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, etc. The President could lose both North Carolina and Indiana, which he won in 2008 and still win the Electoral College and be reelected President with a electoral landslide. But Rasmussen and Fox News perhaps because they don't want the Republican vote to feel like the election is over and that President Obama will be reelected, feel the need to make this election look closer than it actually is right now.
