FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right: Is Rasmussen Reports Biased?

If you're running a news organization and you tend to cite Rasmussen's polls disproportionately, it probably means that you are biased -- it does not necessarily mean that Rasmussen is biased.
Shorter version: Rasmussen frames their questions with a conservative perspective. Faux News cites Rasmussen because it's more favorable to its Republican agenda than other polls.
