First, for my fellow Romney supporters, I highly recommend signing up for making phone calls - I've used this sort of system before for making calls in prior years. They give you a script, the system is set up so that the Caller ID shows Republican call center #, and the people you're contacting at this point are registered Republicans. I signed up for a specific group (Catholics for Nevada), but you can also do generic.
It can be fun if you're like me – a conservative in a state that is a foregone conclusion for Obama – getting a chance to talk with fellow conservatives in swing states. Yes, they have the script, but generally when somebody says "Yeah, I've been waiting for years for this election!" I get to chatting. Makes one feel real good. May also explain why I may be a bit sunny compared to the results we see below…. but enough about my mental state right now.
First up, popular vote polling:
Reminder on Unskewed Polls outlier: that's their election day prediction, the other points are poll averages (their "unskewed" poll). I'm keeping the outlier to check against what happens.
I don't often link to Politico, but when I do, it's to stories like this: Obama's fuzzy Ohio early vote math. Dude, give the man a break – he never mastered math above 7th grade!
FYI: I live in Westchester County in NY. The election prediction tracker may go down for some days.
