Nate Silver: Obama gained an average of 1.5 points between 12 national polls published today. Big sample sizes. That’s a pretty big deal.

The last Pew Research poll before the election.

SkyNews: Opinion polls in the states that matter show Obama with a lead. The national polls show him effectively tied with Mitt Romney.

Nate Silver: Obama’s win probability peaked at 87% on 10/4, last day before polls reflected Denver debate. Fell to 61% on 10/12. Now fully recovered.

Nate Silver: Obama unlikely to win by anything like his post-DNC margins. But Romney has no momentum, Obama’s state polling is robust, and time is up.

Pew Research: Andrew Kohut on NPR: “We know (from past exit polls) that many people do make up their minds at the last moment.”
