July 27, 2011 at 7:12 AM (PT)
Pollster SCOTT RASMUSSEN will host a pair of weekend specials for CITADEL Talk WLS-A/CHICAGO and WMAL-A/WASHINGTON. "THE RASMUSSEN REPORT" will air SUNDAY (7/31) and the following week (8/7) at 3p (ET)/2p (CT).
"Nobody can assess the mindset and emotion of the American electorate like SCOTT RASMUSSEN," said WLS and WMAL Operations Director DREW HAYES. "We hear plenty about what the mainstream media and politicians think. This show will focus on how mainstream Americans actually feel about the critical issues facing the country. We're thrilled to have SCOTT host what we think will be engaging, timely discussions about today's hot-button issues."
"I'm excited about the prospects of these shows," said RASMUSSEN. "There is a wide gulf between the views of the government and those of the governed. Nearly 70 percent of political class thinks the country is headed in the right direction. Nearly 80 percent of mainstream voters think the country is headed in the wrong direction. These shows will explore the differences of opinion and help enlighten us on how to close the gap."
