Not sure if these are from the same panels as NYT/CBS or completely news ones and don't have a link yet, but these babies are hot off the presses:

#COSen Gardner +1
#IASen Braley +1
#NCSen Hagan +2
#GASen Perdue +1.5
#COGov Hick +2.5
#WIGov Walker +1.5
#FLGov tied

No way FL gov voters were Scott +9 in 2010. And they might want to push the undecideds by now!

Judging from the fact that all the numbers are very similar to the ones released last week, I'm guessing that they are indeed the same sample.

Usually by now races start breaking for a candidate in most toss-ups. But that's not going to happen this year it seems.

This poll literally clears nothing up.

There's a link to their final polls now.

"Fresh samples were drawn" they say but "As with all YouGov polls, respondents were selected from online panels."

Decimals and a ton of undecideds a few days before the election!

Brownback +0.8 is the closest they've ever shown that race.

Might as well have made every competitive race an exact tie, lol.

This year's YouGov polls are clearly crap.

Take KS, where Orman/Roberts only have a combined 75% in the final poll, a few days ahead of the election.

Don't know why their quality dropped so badly when compared to their 2008 and 2012 polls, which had almost no undecideds and were accurate too ...

22% undecided?? What a joke.

Do the writers at YouGov have a sense of humor?

Are people embarrassed to admit they voted for Ron Johnson? In the Wisconsin sample, it says they voted for Walker by 7 points in 2010 (which is about the margin he won by), but it also says they voted for Feingold by 2 points.

Also, yeah, if an electorate that voted for the criminal by 9 points in 2010 shows a tie, say hello to Gov.-elect Crist.

On the negative side, this shows Udall losing with an electorate that went for Bennet by 3 points. Congrats Sen.-elect Gardner. Also, people seem to be SUPER embarrassed to admit they voted for Tancredo. It actually shows Maes in second place (46-22-16).

Lets not add these last batches - undecided are far too high.

Thanks,

This is the most blatant case I've seen this entire cycle of a pollster "massaging" the data of a bad sample to  make it appear something vaguely appearing to be based on a random sample. How in the world does a pollster show quadruple the undecided voters compared to other people's polls, but still manage to show the margins between candidates looking like everyone elses', in eleven different tossup races?
