    I saw that on Real Clear Politics yesterday.  Don't know anything about them, but they're based in Michigan, and have Romney up by 4 pts in the state.  Is MI really in play?

    If Wisconsin is a tossup, and MI is vulnerable, it's not good news.

    Oregon: Sure...it's cold. But it's a damp cold.

      But don't worry. They have an MI sample which has under-30s as under 4%, African Americans at 6%, while over-50s constitute more than 80% of those questioned.

      It's garbage, pure and simple. Or in case you want to try quantifying how garbagey it is, Nate Silver gives them an 11 point Republican house effect - i.e. a 4 point Romney lead in one of their polls is more likely "really" a 7 point Obama lead.

      Hope that's enough to talk you down. MI is not in play.
