Presidential Election Polls

Want to know who's going to win the election come November? What do the polls say? A great source for this information is the website:

538 is of course the number of electors in the Electoral College.

Last month, FiveThirtyEight was selected as a "Notable Narrative" by the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University. The Nieman Foundation says, "In his posts, former economic analyst and baseball-stats wunderkind Nate Silver explains the presidential race, using the dramatic tension inherent in the run-up to Election Day to drive his narrative. Come November 5, we will have a winner and a loser, but in the meantime, Silver spins his story from the myriad polls that confound us lesser mortals."
