Welcome to the Morning Buzz, PRRI’s morning dose of religion-related news with a shot of data – because what doesn’t liven up a morning round-up like some public opinion numbers?

In which Americans, once again, demonstrate that they are always willing to say stupid things on TV.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is launching his own SuperPAC to support moderate candidates.

Forget next week’s final presidential debate – this showdown between this year’s third-party candidates, moderated by Larry King, is the one to watch.

The election could come down to one issue: coal.

At Religion & Politics, Tiffany Stanley takes us inside a church service on Pulpit Freedom Sunday. Some 1,500 pastors are committing civil disobedience by endorsing candidates from the pulpit.

And speaking of church/state issues, a Texas town is divided over whether high school cheerleaders should be able to hold up Bible verses during sports games.

Mitt Romney’s “binder” moment in the debate instantly spawned a meme, but it’s also getting a hard once-over from fact-checkers who report that Romney’s eagerness to hire women faded rather quickly.
