Charting Bush (Continued)

So I’ve been using my election dashboard to monitor the post republican convention dynamic.

Electoral College

Futures Market

Bush Approval Ratings

The Approval Ratings and Futures Markets show big moves for Bush post-convention. The futures market in particular is very troubling for Kerry.

But the Electoral College is still looking very good for Kerry. I don’t totally understand this and am going to drill down. It appears to me that Kerry’s hanging in there in places like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and New Mexico that didn’t look good for him during the convention last week. Bottom line, the electoral college is still in a lot of flux.

And so I’ve added a new feature to the blog. I copied this from Tom Watson. Now you’ll be able to follow the electoral college every time you visit my blog by looking down the left hand column, just below the Google search bar.
