Interesting day if you like polling analysis, which as it happens I do. Here are some final items crossing the transom:

* Buzzfeed reports Boca Moment made front pages of 41 battleground state newspapers. If it doesn’t affect the race, it won’t be for lack of exposure.

* Scott Brown’s campaign has to put out statement reasserting his support for Romney after unhappy remarks about Boca Moment.

* Director of National Counterterrorism Center confirms deadly assault on Benghazi consulate was “a terrorist attack” with al-Qaeda involvement.

* At Ten Miles Square, Joshua Tucker provides hilarious Ted McCagg cartoon on what “the 53%” depend on.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer discusses the abolition of the journalism program at my alma mater, Emory University. They didn’t have one when I was there, which helps explain why I entered the profession very late.

And in non-political news:

* School lunches getting a makeover this year thanks to new USDA guidelines.

Time to end my laptop-hogging ways. Back bright and early tomorrow.
