Yahoo Finally Got Back Into My Daily Folder

Comments (3)

The very first folder in my browser toolbar is called "Daily" and it’s the folder I right click and choose "Open All in Tabs" first thing in the morning when I do my email / web / blog drill.  For a long time my.yahoo.com was in there; I took it out about a year ago because I was getting all the information I wanted from other places.

Last week, Alan Warms from Yahoo sent me an email about the new Yahoo Political Dashboard.  Fred already beat me with a blog about it titled Polls vs Markets but I totally agree with him – Alan and his team have done a dynamite job creating a political dashboard that I’ll now look at every day.   It’s now the 11th item in my Daily folder.

    as i noted on fred's blog, any election forecasting service would be incomplete without noting the presence of election fraud in the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections, and the 2008 primary elections. diebold machines are still in many parts of the country and have been proven to be able to be hacked by relatively incompetent programmers with few resources.

    blackboxvoting.org is a great site for those looking to keep an eye on election fraud and get involved in making sure our elections are fair.

    Have you checked out http://www.fivethirtyeight.com yet? It's the best political numerical analysis out there. He's got a great regression model that uses demographics and polling data – beat most of the polls during the primaries.
