The Presidential Race

There is a certain lack of detailed analysis in most reporting on the results of polls. This morning I discovered two interesting resources, New York Times Presidential Calculator(the link will take you to a page called Interactive Graphic 2004 Election Guide--click on Presidential Calculator) and Latest Swing State Polling data (via Zogby/WSJ). By modifying the New York Times map with the results of the latest Zogby/WSJ poll I get 216 electoral votes for Bush, 322 for Kerry. And this poll was taken before the Democratic convention.
