Tracking the polls prior to the election

FiveThirtyEight.com and Electoral-vote.com have become my most frequented sites as Nov. 4 swiftly approaches.  Both sites harvest and distill all the state and national polls each day and present them in both a country-wide map view, for quick reading, and also with detailed state-by-state breakdowns.  Historical data, Senate and House race data and links to sites that track campaign donations can be found on the Data Galore page. My favorite find was the bellwethers, listing the track record of each state for picking the winner of the national race.   (MO has only picked the losing candidate once since 1900!)
