A Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All...

Over these last two years, we are thankful to have had the opportunity to share the most exciting, compelling election of our lifetimes with you from this unique vantage point.  The last year in particular has been long and sometimes grueling, so my family and I are looking forward to taking the next week or so off.  Eric will be checking in from time to time, but I will be pretty much off the radar until the new year.

It will be a new year full of new polls and new challenges, and we are looking to bringing you new charts and analysis to follow it all.

Until then, from all of us here at, we wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah or joy in whatever way you celebrate the holiday season.  And if I don't get the chance to say it online, a happy New Year too.
