Rasmussen only polls people with hardline phones into their homes.

How many young people have never had a hardwire phone in their lives?

Knowing this, how likely is a Rasmussen poll worth any more than a coin flip?


While we do not currently call cell phones directly when conducting our surveys, to reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview a demographically diverse panel. Just like our telephone surveys, respondents for this approach are selected on a random basis to insure the reliability of the sample.
