Many people say that Rasmussen polls are biased, leaning to the right, politically. Others say that they are representative of the US population, being a serious and professional polling service with a longstanding record. It has been said that they tend to get different results than other major national US polls. Are they right-biased in their sample of the US population, or are other polls biased? Rasmussen did predict Trump's 2016 win, while other polls failed to predict this. Or is it something else - maybe they do not get different results especially often after all, or perhaps they simply use a different technique that leads to different results? Let's get the facts.
