    I saw a report from the New York Times stating that voter registration for the Democratic Party was up 250% vs. 25% for the Republican Party. That makes me more excited than a room full of pug puppies.

    Added this link from Polling Report to my RSS feeds, [link] Polling Report claims it is an independent, nonpartisan resource on trends in American public opinion, which it appears to be. Majority of most recent polls show Bush leading.

    I think the more useful metric besides, because it *is* so close, is this site: electoral-vote.com – which does not track broad “popular vote” numbers, but instead focuses on what actually gets Presidents elected (besides, of course, the Supreme Court) — the electoral college. It’s been fun watching the numbers jump around. They also have RSS feeds.

    Electoral-vote.com is run by a Kerry supporter and currently shows Bush ahead in electoral votes.

    So’s this site, but you still come here route66. ;-)

    Also, this caught my eye:

    I hate this site. Is there one run by a Republican?

    Yes. Take a look at electionprojection.com. It is strongly biased in favor of George Bush.

    I’ve been following electoral-vote.com since before either convention, and it’s tracked along pretty well with the data. The guy does complete transparency — he shares ALL his excel spreadsheets with his readers. Kerry supporter or not, the guy respects the numbers and provides information. Your terse “Electoral-vote.com is run by a Kerry supporter and currently shows Bush ahead in electoral votes.” makes it sound like you think the site is untrustworthy. If that is what you’re implying, then I completely disagree. Also, the graph is a great indicator that the guy is simply tracking the polls as far as I can tell. It seems to me a guy with his “thumb on the scale” would make that graph look a little better for his guy.

    SanDiegoBlog is pro-Kerry. What a shock! Even so, the camaraderie I feel here is so addicting. ;-) .

    Yeah, I already knew about electionprojection.com.

    Not implying electoral-vote.com is untrustworthy, just encouraged by the fact that a Kerry partisan is acknowledging the fact that Bush is currently ahead in electoral votes.

    We have lots of authors here, and some I should think are more of a Republican bent – you for example route66, as well as MAS. These are just guesses. If you know of anyone of a more conservative bent who might like to write for us please holler!

    This site has drifted off it’s charter. It’s gone from being about San Diego to a Democrat message board. Good luck
    Route66, I’m outta here.

    The City of San Diego website has a good Voter’s Guide, which includes a list of propositions on the ballot and for/against statements for each.
