Happy Friday.

I have some numbers posts first today... First, this dude looked at the statements of 2012 House candidates (so *all* potential members of next year's House of Reps) and found bimodality both between the parties and within the parties. Confirmation, if we needed it, that there really is a Right and Middle wing to the GOP (and also a Left and Far Left wing among the Democrats).

Second, this guy finds evidence in Ohio that Obama's early voting turnout is merely cannibalizing high-propensity voters that would have turned out anyway, while Romney's early voting is turning out low-propensity voters.

Third, Jen Rubin takes a peek at the Romney campaign's internals, which find the same cannibalization effect in Iowa.

I wrote yesterday at the NYDN that Romney has good reason to be confident in the home stretch. That still looks true.

Romney is outspending Obama on ads in every state that's seeing presidential advertisements this week. All told, Romney and GOP groups are spending $80 million on ads this week, compared to Obama and Dems, who are only spending $50 million.

I know I already posted this, but Rev. Lowery's racism is still bugging me.

A second judge has granted a Catholic-owned business a preliminary injunction against the HHS contraception/abortifacent mandate. The right first step, but neither case has a merits decision yet.

New Jersey utilities crews turned away out-of-state crews sent from Alabama to help with Sandy recovery because the Alabama crews were not unionized.

As you know, there will be a BLS jobs report this morning at 8:30. My guess is that, whether the numbers are good or bad, they won't do much to change the election. Certainly the September and August reports didn't. That won't stop the media (and the twitter commentariat) from spending a few breathless hours on it before SQUIRREL!!
