Pre-Election Potpourri

- November 5, 2012

* This election’s not likely to be a mandate.  And here is my post arguing that 2008 was no mandate for Obama, as far as voters were concerned.

* How much did news coverage move the polls in 2012?  Sam Best and David Fan say: “a little.”

* New articles on voter identification and voter restrictions in Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Maine, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. (Hat tip to Amy Fried.)

* Competitive districts do not breed more moderate representatives.

* What’s going to happen in state legislative elections this year?
