Is there any reliable polling right now for current Senate races?
I've scoured the internet, but I don't seem to be finding anything worth reading (Rasmussen appears to be the only site with a good collection regularly updated, but he essentially has any Republican up 50 points on any Democrat and Obama's approval rating hovering around 2%, so he's obviously complete shit). Thanks for any help in advance!

1. What exactly are you looking for?
Poll results that make you feel good, or ones that will turn out to have accurately predicted the election outcome?

3. To be fair, just some accurate polling on the upcoming Senate races.
I'm not looking for some site that is going to fluff the Democratic numbers either. I have just found Rasmussen and Real Clear Politics to be SO slanted to the right (and actually just wholesale inaccurate) that I don't see them having any value. For instance, I'm CONSTANTLY seeing the generic Democrat vs Republican polls there with the Repubs WAY up on the Dems, and I'm not seeing that anywhere else (and they consistently have Rubio way ahead of Crist, which I'm not seeing anywhere else either).

I was just looking for a site that might have a comprehensive look at the upcoming races. The analysis on fivethirtyeight.com is typically very well thought out, but unless I just don't know how to navigate it, I'm not really seeing any head to head polling there either.

4. Ah, I found a bunch of links on 538 to some places doing exactly what I was looking for.
Election Projection seems to have some good, across the board numbers compiled nicely. So thanks for the suggestion! :)
