The Most “Real” Reporting

Understanding that I should have written this post a while ago, I’m posting now because it’s better late than never. RealClearPolitics has shown to be the most up-to-date, honest and factual reporting system on the web around the 2008 election. Since, as of late, there is so much uncertainty about electoral college votes, who will actually turn up to the polls and how much Sarah Palin will continue to spend on her non-Alaskan wardrobe, this source is the way to go.

At 3:16pm PST on November 4th the poll average on show that Obama is up 52.1 over McCain’s 44.5 with Obama having a +7.6 lead. The generic congressional vote shows that Democrats are up 47.6 over Republicans’ 39.6, giving Democrats a +9.0 lead.

A very comprehensive website,’s blog highlights topics such as McCain’s public memo that slams Obama’s celebrity status or “agressive” campaigns ads, last minute rallying, and O’Reilly going off on McClellan. The public knows that this race is not a friendly one. The last round in this boxing match is on and topics featured on political blogs such as this one show that things aren’t going to get any easier.

As displayed on, it was founded in 2000 by John McIntyre and Tom Bevan, Chicago-based (RCP) has become one of America’s premier independent political web sites. Updated every morning and throughout the day, RCP culls and publishes the best commentary, news, polling data, and links to important resources from all points of the political compass and covering all the important issues of the day. RealClearPolitics has become a trusted filter for anyone interested in politics.
