Pollster and political commentator Scott Rasmussen is taking his long-running “Number of the Day” feature on Ballotpedia and making it a daily podcast. Scott Rasmussen’s Number of the Day will be released each weekday at 8:00am ET. “I am excited by the opportunity to share my passion for data-driven analysis with a new audience,” Rasmussen said in the announcement.

The show is part of Just the News, the multiplatform news network launched in January 2020 by investigative journalist John Solomon. “Scott has been conducting our widely quoted daily poll and now he will give our listeners a podcast that makes sense of the numbers that define what Americans are thinking,” Solomon said. “He is one of the most respected barometers of American sentiment. The context and insights he brings to politics are a must-listen opportunity as we head into the 2020 fall election.”

Crossover Media Group will handle advertising sales for the Number of the Day podcast. “Scott has earned his place among America’s premier pollsters and political analysts,” said managing member Ron Hartenbaum. “He gets it right more often than most, and his insights can be essential to understanding the 2020 races.” Crossover Media Group already produces, sells and distributes audio and video programming for Just the News.

Just the News launched in January with content that also includes the twice-a-week John Solomon Reports podcast hosted by the company’s founder, The Pod’s Honest Truth hosted by CBN correspondent and Just the News senior contributing editor David Brody, and The Sharyl Attkisson Podcast, a weekly public affairs show hosted by the veteran television correspondent.
