44. Yes, I think that is a good idea
All polls can be biased, and pre-election polls have a different set of problems to exit polls, but yes, I think it is very much worthwhile making a note of the pre-election polls in each state.

Except that they are already compiled on pollster.com

But it will certainly be of interest if the final returns are wildly different from the immediately preceding pre-election polls. It may give us some kind of estimate as to the degree of voter suppression that has gone on, for instance. Or at least an indication.
