Well this is it. No more polls to be released I think after today. Hope this has been helpful to those wanting one stop polling shopping. Feel free to link the posts in other threads. Please post and discuss and share.
Zogby International

Latest from Zogby. Remember all the interest in him starting with a partial Friday night lead? Remember all the publicity he has gotten giving hope and then dashing them for each side? He is a publicity hound and the record book will not record the accuracy of his interim polls only his final numbers.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2008 - Latest Polls
RCP Average 10/29 - 11/03 -- -- 52.0 44.2 Obama +7.8
The start of the day with RCP and there is one really big WOW poll, really wow.
IBDeditorials.com: Editorials, Political Cartoons, and Polls from Investor's Business Daily
With just hours to go before the polls open Tuesday, the latest and final IBD/TIPP Tracking Poll shows Sen. Barack Obama with a 7.2-point lead over Sen. John McCain (51.5% Obama vs. 44.3% McCain). All other candidates garner a combined 4.2%. This tally represents IBD/TIPP’s final estimate after allocating undecided voters.

This was the poll heralded by the McCain supporters as showing McCain closing. This was the poll that was suppose to have been the most accurate in 2004. It show Obama hitting the RCP average also with a lead of over 7. The closes poll still listed in RCP has Obama at 5 and they seem to be closing in on the 7-8 point range. It appears according to IBD that the independents are breaking Obama.

So what happens if McCain wins? will people finally realize that polls are useless? That the only numbers that count are the ones being tallied today? Or will people forget over the next 4 brutal years and start analyzing polls again in 2012?

What the hell are we going to talk about in between Nov 6th (I figure depending on who wins there will be a good 24 hours of complaining) and Inauguration day? I miss everyone already

Pollster.com: Morning Status Update for 11/04
In the last 24 hours 23 logged a record 90 new statewide surveys, including the 50 statewide internet panel surveys released last night from (interests disclosed) our sponsor and parent company, YouGovPolimetrix. For the sake of a reasonably sized table, if nothing else, I have omitted the YouGov/Polimetrix state surveys from the table below, but they are now included in all of our charts and statewide estimates.

Thirty-one (31) of the new statewide surveys were tracking polls that updated results released previously by the same pollster since October 15. These recent trackers demonstrated no consistent trend: 11 showed nominal improvement for Obama, 14 showed nominal improvement for McCain and 6 showed no change in the margin separating the candidates

Folks should be very aware that while national polls are not tightening and if fact are moving more Obama, many state races are getting closer. The big question as posted on a previous day is the cell phone factor for state races. Very few state polls contact cell phones and Fivethirtyeight feels that is worth upwards of 2 points for Obama in state races. The link is in a couple of previous days polling thread.
