But, alas, my addiction to poll-watching has apparently done nothing to alter the midterm predictions, lift my hopes, or boost my spirits. All it's done is make me feel all worried and weltschmertzy.
And so I'm done. I'm finished pulling up Fivethirtyeight to check the midterm polls. In fact, I'm done with looking at anything having to with the midterm elections. I've already voted, my ballot is cast and recorded, and now there's nothing more I can do to influence the outcome of the midterms, least of all angst over polls and political prognostications.
So no more politics for me between now and November 8. I've taken the pledge, sworn off the stuff, staying free and clear of it all.
I'm just having one, last, final farewell-to-Fivethirtyeight. It really is my last look. Really.
