Several comments.
1.  Most of the state polls do NOT include minor party candidates, and thus probably understate Obama's relative position
2.  As many people have noted, samples of most polls seem to understate Latino voters, and some also over sample older voters, etc.

Relative performance not affected overall  Slight drop in overall % but increase in EVs.  Former b/c of national polls later probably b/c of increased % in VA

Assuming WI & NV are pretty much locked, then OH, NH & IA would mean a minimum of 281 EVs, with VA increasingly likely to take it to 294.

We will have to see what if any impact DMR endorsement for Romney has on IA figures.  I would doubt more than 2% +/- which would still leave a 2/3 probability for Obama.

Campaign schedules changing b/c of Sandy.  Also not sure what impact upon voting Sandy may have.  No impact in FL.  The possibility remains that Obama's total popular vote could be hurt by real devastation in the Northeast, in states with no early voting in areas heavily DEM -  Philadelphia and NYC for example.

NOTE -  I believe Nate includes the Rand poll in calculating his national percentages, and this version does NOT include the 7 point margin released this morning.  Remember, Nate posted around 2 AM.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
