Poll Update (10/27)

Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska was convicted on seven felony counts relating to his corruption trial. After the verdict was read Steven continued to profess his innocence and went on to say that "this verdict is the result of the unconscionable manner in which the Justice Department lawyers conducted this trial. I ask that Alaskans and my Senate colleagues stand with me as I pursue my rights. I remain a candidate for the United States Senate." If you truly believe that a federal trial was carried out in an "unconscionable manner," you have defied your obligation as a US Senator to uphold the Constitution of the United States' fifth and fourteenth amendment, and thus, you are unfit to hold the office which you seek. The mere absurdity of your reasoning justifies your conviction. Now onto the polls.

Obama now has an outside shot at hitting 400 Electoral Votes. A new poll by Rasmussen places Arizona in the Lean Rep category. If in the next eight days Obama takes the lead in Arizona the election is over. Here were the rest of today's polls:

I've spent the majority of my free time today collating 2004 and 2006 election results. Using this data I hope to provide some historical perspective on Senate Coefficients. Look for it later tonight and look for a follow up to our Bradley Effect Model later in the week.

Update: I incorrectly entered the Senate poll for Virginia taken by VCU as a presidential poll. This has now been corrected; my thanks goes out to "dickelocker" for bringing this to my attention.

What's the strange VA Commonwealth Poll (2nd of 10/22) with 61ob to 27Mc and 12 undecided? Two from VA Common on same day. Is 2nd the Senate race? That equates with other Warner polls.
