Lots to do today, so my interest in blogging is “tightening”...

...but what do you think?  Spill it.  Predictions welcome. Open thread.

BULLETIN: We’ll be doing a pre-election version of Radio Rumproast tomorrow night at 8:00 PM ET.  It’ll be an expanded version of our bloggers roundtable.  Still working on the line-up but so far the panel will include ts from Instaputz and our very own Betty Cracker. Stay tuned for more details. UPDATE: Denise Williams from AOL’s Political Machine and Rumproast’s Poputonian will be joining us as well.

MORE INFO: We’ll be hosting one of our raucous open threads on election night starting at 5PM and going all night. Also, our pals at Unusable Signal will be doing a 4-hour election night show on Tuesday (8PM-12AM ET) with reports from the Obama event in Chicago and the Comedy Central party. Oh, and if you need a laugh today, you can listen in on this. Ghouliani, Lady Lynn de Laughingstock and Flowbee, together at last.

From the Associated Press:

Supporters of John McCain, long less enthusiastic than Obama’s, have become increasingly glum about the presidential campaign in recent weeks, according to an Associated Press-Yahoo News poll released Saturday. Their feelings have turned more negative during a period that has seen Obama, the Democratic senator from Illinois, take a firm lead in many polls.

Obama’s backers have retained a higher level of excitement. One expert says the contrasting moods could affect how likely the two candidates’ supporters are to vote on Election Day, possibly dampening McCain’s turnout while boosting Obama’s.

While 43 percent of Obama’s backers said they are excited over the campaign, just 13 percent of McCain’s said so, according to the survey of adults, conducted by Knowledge Networks. Six in 10 Obama supporters said the race interests them, compared to four in 10 backing McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona.

On the flip side, 52 percent of McCain supporters said the campaign has left them frustrated, compared to 30 percent of Obama’s. A quarter of McCain backers say they feel helpless, double the rate of those preferring Obama.

Not desperate

From The Patriot Room (“On Politics, We Can Always See the Whites of Their Eyes.”):

GOP Internal Polls (NJ, CA, MI, PA) Show Possible Landslide for McCain

David Jeffers runs a blog called the Salt and Light. He is linking to something called the Quinn & Rose Show. The host is talking to a guy who seems to be connected to some of the GOP bigwigs, who give him internal polling numbers. The audio link is here. If this is accurate, and I cannot vouch for it, but it sounds like it might be, we could be in for a really great night of schadenfreude on Tuesday, watching the Chernobyl meltdown on MSNBC.
