Wrote this a while ago but wanted to let Paul’s post stay up top longer. Then like an idiot, unplugged the iMac (to move it) without saving! Time for a nap. But here’s the final items of the day:
* Bad news for post-election analysis: Media consortium cancels state-level exit polls in 19 non-competitive states. They’ll still contribute to national exits. Rising costs, some related to early voting, blamed as culprit.
* More detailed rundown on Romney/Obama exchanges on education policy in debate.
* Good Brentin Mock piece on Artur Davis’ role as validator for Tea Party-based voter suppresion efforts.
* At Ten Miles Square, John Sides predicts Romney post-debate poll bounce of about 1.25%.
* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer argues that public universities’ pledge to boost graduation rates won’t matter if state fiscal support continues to decline.
And in non-political news:
* Facebook announces one billionth active user.
Back as promised for the September Jobs Report in the morning.
