Daily Tracking Poll

This is probably the only daily tracking poll on the election worth following. I keep reposting it, but now I'm asking you to post it on your sites. (Cincinnati? Randal?--you should be proud.)

This is posted daily and updated as events unfold. The first time I saw the guy whose site this is interviewed was about a week ago on Olbermann. Since then I've seen him on Rachel Maddow. Sorry I can't remember his name. He's young and very smart and laid back and wonky. There are at least two people posting and you can comment there. I just want you to watch this for your own sanity. It will reassure you. And we could all use a look at something that lets us feel better about our fellow citizens. We just might not be as stupid as they think.

It's called five thirty eight.

I love fivethirtyeight! The young man's name is Nate Silver.

Good to see you're keeping up with the hot pollster hipsters. Nate Silver. Love him.

Utah, I LOVE this site. Thanks for the name, dcup. It's looking good for Obama, but I'm going to stay cautiously optimistic.

Hugs to you both.

I've been following a tracking poll called intrade because those that go there actually buy shares of their candidate. Nothing like money to make it interesting. The site boasts an accuracy of 100% since they started.

Shares of Obama are at 77 last I checked
McCain is going for 22
