Polling for President: A First Read

I am going to wait until September to offer a more expansive, detailed analysis of the latest polling, but for those of you who are interested, take a look at this rundown from The Daily Kos.

It's based on this article from Gallup, the polling firm.

If you really want to play along, go to and construct your own electoral college map. You can click on the individual states to turn them red (for Republican), blue (for Democrat) or leave them tan if you don't want to guess.

My map is here.

If for whatever reason you forgot or never learned how we elect our president, I'll be playing history teacher for the next 14 months and will explain it to you. And I'll answer questions. But for now, enjoy the rest of the summer.
