I have fed today's 5-million-word blog post by Nate Silver to my beastly Yada-Yada Essence Condenser and here's what's left:
[A]lthough [Romney's] made gains, he does not seem to have taken the lead in very many state polls. That trend, if anything, has become more entrenched. Of the half-dozen or so polls of battleground states published on Wednesday, none showed Mr. Romney ahead; the best result he managed was a 48-48 tie in a Rasmussen Reports poll of New Hampshire.
That last part brings a smile; even Rasmussen couldn't cook up anything better than a tie.
