Two good links for those who plan to follow the Presidential (and other) polls between now and Nov: the 'house effects' of polling firms and why the recent Bloomberg poll is probably an outlier.

“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions…for safety on the streets…for child care, for social welfare…for rape crisis centers, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.

If someone says, “Oh, I’m not a feminist,” I ask, “Why, what’s your problem?”

National polls are always worthless when we talk about the Presidential election. It is not how we vote.


The 538 number is probably true now, but obviously doesn't include Obamacares ruling, and ignores that the economy is going down. If that last trend continues, Romney wins big, big.
