Scott Rasmussen, co-founder of ESPN (Entertainment and Sports Programming Network), network and cable news commentator, and president of Rasmussen Reports, will anchor the speaker lineup for the 2012 NATO Show -- to be held April 24-26, 2012, at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev.

Rasmussen has been an independent public opinion pollster since 1994, and is a frequent guest on Fox News, CNBC, the BBC and other major media outlets. Political analyst, pundit and journalist Michael Barone calls Rasmussen "one of America's most innovative pollsters."

Andy Kerstein, president of NATO, said, "We all want 'insider information' on anything that might impact the tobacco business. No one is better able to deliver insight on the upcoming presidential election more accurately than Scott Rasmussen. He watches the numbers, and will give attendees at the NATO Show an accurate picture of who has the best chance to get elected and what that means to our businesses."

Rasmussen leads an all-star lineup of speakers, including: Bonnie Herzog, managing director of beverage, tobacco and consumer research for Wells Fargo Securities LLC and Thomas Briant, executive director of NATO.
