Keep Thompson Out of Polls

For the past few weeks, I have been using Rasmussen Reports as my polling source. Unfortunately, they have began including Fred Thompson in their polls. This is troubling, because that means the results are now corrupted. To include a non-candidate (the same goes for Newt) in a poll artificially lowers the numbers of pretty much everyone else in the poll. It seems likely that they will continue to include Thompson until he decides weather or not to run, so, I will not be reporting their weekly polls any longer. I will include one small update in this post:

In the latest Rasmussen poll,  Giuliani’s support fell to 26% with the introduction of Fred Thompson in the poll. Mitt Romney’s support did not change, remaining around the 10% mark.
