Excellent links here. It's great to see bloggers keeping their attention on the economy as we approach next week's election. It is, without a doubt, an important and complex issue facing our country right now. Here at Public Agenda we've put together an informative, non-partisan guide that focuses on the facts and the plethora of perspectives surrounding the economic debate in America. Be sure to check it out at http://publicagenda.org/citizen/electionguides/economy and feel free to contact us with any questions. The federal deficit clock is at $10.3 trillion, and is still ticking – learn more about taxes, spending and the national debt by also visiting http://publicagenda.org/citizen/electionguides/taxesdebt.

Re: fivethirtyeight.com

I've been watching the polls obsessively myself, but I recommend www.pollster.com. The aggregate about as many polls as you've ever heard of, and their trend fitting is based on LOESS, iterative localized polynomials.

Mouseover the states to see the current aggregated results, but click on a state to see a graph of it over time. You can then mouseover any poll, represented by a point, to see the actual numbers, or click on it to see just that poll's trend. You can also affect the settings of how the trendlines are fit and what data/dates are included.

Check it out.

One of the nice things about 538 is the comment section - blogging post-debate and on issues of the moment.

Basically the polls give me a warm fuzzy feeling that I hope carries through on nov. 4th.

Think Progress » Elizabeth Dole ad falsely suggests opponent Kay Hagan is ‘Godless.’

But she did associate with the godless. How can she be trusted if she associates with adults that don't have an imaginary friend?

"Took Godless money" is my favorite quote from the commercial.

Does your money have a god?

The money must be counterfeit, since it must be missing the "in god we trust" slogan.

I have to say - after all the garbage that has come down this election, there have only been two things to shock me and Elizabeth Dole's ad is one of them. McCain's stuff hasn't surprised me - any surprise in his tactics died a long time ago when he literally and figuratively embraced the man who had so completely screwed him over = but for E. Dole to take this pandering scare tactic makes me realize how in politics - the normal rules do not apply. Truly sad.

Wow; I used to at least respect Dole even if I disagreed with her politically. She did do some nice work when she first took office in NC - she and Bob really helped Bennett College in Greensboro. This ad, however, is sad.

Kay Hagan is a decent woman, religion or no. Maybe this ad will start raising the right kind of hackles in central NC.

The woman to vote out of office in NC is Virginia Foxx. If I werer still living in NC, I'd probably throw some $ at Roy Carter..

This is typical of what Foxx says.

(eek) "were"

Also, I like the new O ad.

Great links, Norm, all good stuff!

I just saw last week's Maher -- why is the Allen Raymond story not getting more exposure?

While people scream ACORN, there is indisputable proof that Republicans rig elections. I hope everyone got a chance to see this interview:
