I’ve been exploring the internet and have currently found two more websites to share that are related to the link I posted in the entry below.
The first website, called electoral-vote.com, is another website that deals with current state-by-state polls of whom the majority of residents would choose for president. The interesting thing about this site, however, is that it predicts, based on what the latest polls for each state say, how many electoral votes each presidential candidate would get, if the election were held today. Consequently, this website also purports to predict the winner of this year’s presidential election. The predictions tend to vary from day-to-day, though, since polls in so many states this year are tied, or extremely (within the margin of error) close. The website is interesting, though, if you’re interested in keeping up with the latest polls. Also, if you do some digging around, the website also predicts what the outcome of the Senate race will be this year.
The other neat website I found is much like electoral-vote.com, only designed in a more professional matter. It’s called pollingreport.com, and is a great source to get results to polls answered by citizens throughout the United States. The polls on this website include whom the majority of people nationally would vote for for president (if the election were held tomorrow, of course...), what percentage of people think the war in Iraq was a good idea, what percentage of people approve of the way President Bush is handling his job, and so on. Just like electoral-vote.com, pollingreport.com is another interesting website to check out if you’d like to keep up on the latest polls.
Both websites I’ve listed label themselves as strictly nonpartisan in nature, though I've noticed a slight slant to the left on some of the commentary that goes along with the polls at electoral-college.com. Also, be warned that any polling company listed on electoral-college.com that has a (D) or (R) after their name is, in some way, affiliated with either the Democratic or Republican Party. Sometimes the results of these polls can be a little questionable, as these party-supported polling companies often try to make their own party's candidate look superior.
