Thursday already? This week is just flying by.
- Nate Silver explains how he deals with outlier polls. Like, for instance, a certain Bloomberg poll from yesterday.
- An interesting article proposing that the Democrats are changing the nature of their New Deal coalition. I’m not sure I buy the conclusion that the Democrats have abandoned class issues — the experience of Wisconsin suggests that labor continues to play a major role in Democratic politics.
- The Fed extended Operation Twist. It’s a good move, but the Fed needs to get more aggressive if Congress is unwilling to pass a jobs plan. Ezra Klein thinks there’s a scary read to Bernanke’s response.
