* This Resurgent Republic graph demonstrates the perils of using pre-election polls to predict who will vote.

* “Romney Backers Using Computer,” but in 1968.

* A fascinating obituary.

That RR graph is very unconvincing.

2012 enthusiasm didn’t predict CHANGES in turnout from 2008 to 2012.
But, without controlling for enthusiasm in 2008, what good does that do us?
