So pretty much where everyone else is.

Obama still riding high on his Sandy/Christie bounce.

No, I think it started to wear off Saturday and should show up big time tomorrow!!! :0001:

Weekend polls are always better for Democrats.

You can even see this by comments posted on newspaper/TV websites.  Weekend comments are almost always dominated by Democrats, since most Republicans have better things to do than sit around at home, answer polls, and post talking points on every site possible.

Are they still D+5 on their sample?

THU was an especially bad day on RAS (my calculations show the President was ahead 3 or so point of the Governor on THU individual day polling)

FRI was OK, but SAT was still a decent polling day for the President

I had called this result on another forum at 9 AM CST today. Gallup is using this opportunity to "walk back". Sad

They should have shown us daily polling results

I find it difficult to believe one of these candidates isn't going to get at least 50 percent of the vote, and when I look at who is most likely to do that based on the internals (such as job approval with likely voters and who is most likely to help the economy) I don't see how OPapaDoc can break through.  I think a lot of people are going to be telling the reporters tomorrow they went in intending to vote Obama but changed their mind at the last minute based only on their intuition that we needed a change.
