Scott Rasmussen is founder and president of Rasmussen Reports. He is a political analyst, author, speaker and, since 1994, an independent public opinion pollster.
“If it’s in the news, it’s in our polls” is more than a company slogan; it’s the way Scott runs his business.
Scott translates numbers into meaningful analysis and commentary about current events, underlying trends and the questions that Americans are curious about. He is a frequent guest on Fox News, CNBC, BBC and The Colbert Report just to name a few.
Scott is the author of Mad as Hell: How the Tea Party Movement is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two-Party System and In Search of Self-Governance and has had several columns published in the Wall Street Journal. Additionally, his work has appeared in USA Today, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Boston Globe, Investor’ s Business Daily, The Christian Science Monitor and other major publications.
Scott did his first radio commercial at the age of seven and considers a career highlight the opportunity to work closely with hockey legend Gordie Howe.
Oh, yeah. Scott has another claim to fame. He and his father also founded the cable sports network ESPN. They sold their interest in 1984.
