Each day's open thread will appear in the morning and remain open for 24 hours. We also encourage you to use the "favorite" button to identify the most interesting or insightful comments.

Wednesday featured comment

"I think what we're seeing from Gallup is that MR had 2-3 great polling days in the middle of last week that took him from +2 to +7. This week, those days are dropping out of the survey and it is reverting toward the mean. On top of that, we'll see if there's any post-debate impact, but that won't show fully until early next week." - SParadise
