The Election

After twelve days without power and a frenzy of job applications, I am finally posting again. My new problem is that I have a manuscript due soon, but I can't stop checking the electoral maps and polls compulsively. Does anyone else have this problem? It's not as though West Virginia is going to become a "toss up" between 3:30 and 4:15 on a Sunday, but I'm there, checking just in case.

I like NPR's map and the Real Clear Politics map. It has nice historical features to boot - how many states did Nixon win in '72? Oh yeah, almost all of them.
