Monday night is the first presidential debate! And if it wasn't already clear that the stakes of Monday night's event are super, super high, three new polls are out that put the presidential race in a dead heat:

  • A national Bloomberg poll finds Clinton and Trump tied at 46 percent in a head-to-head survey. (Clinton's ahead by 2 when other candidates are included.)
  • A CNN/ORC poll in Colorado has Trump at 42 percent and Clinton at 41.
  • CNN/ORC's survey in Pennsylvania, meanwhile, has Clinton at 45 and Trump at 44.

FWIW, Clinton still leads Trump by 2.1 points in RealClearPolitics' average and by 4 points in HuffPo Pollster's average. FiveThirtyEight puts her odds of winning at 58.2 percent.

LOL, I'm gonna barf!
