Electoral Maps



Awhile back I emailed out links to a couple of electoral maps. I'm repeating those links in this post, but I found a couple more maps worth watching.

A Dem runs Electoral-Vote.com, but he updates constantly and seems honest with the data.

ElectionProjection.com is run by a Republican, but it's not updated as often.

The Iowa Electronic Markets graph is not an electoral map at all, but it is interesting. This is a regularly updated graph of the popular vote.

The RealClearPolitics map is updated more often than "Election Projection" and seems nonpartisan.

The TradeSports map is interesting because it's a map that reflects odds given in a betting pool for the outcome of the election in each state. It actually tracks very close to the other maps (people must be doing their research before laying their money down) so I always give it a look.

This goofy looking map advertises that it is updated regularly, but for the moment seems to favor Kerry overly. One thing I like about it is that it gives you the ability to play around. You can change states from one column to the next with a single click - seeing instantly how the vote count changes. This will be nifty on election night.

I'm enough of a political junky now that I check all these maps regularly. With the election this close, they can change drastically from day-to-day.
