Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

Campaign Snapshot

Two great political reads on the upcoming election: the latest edition of the Electoral Vote Predictor has terrific data, as well as a fascinating discussion on the possibilities and implications of a tied electoral college (including Colorado's ballot initiative to distribute electoral votes in proportion to the vote total, instead of all-or-nothing).

The second item is a very optimistic Washington Time's interview with Karl Rove [via Political Wire]. Obviously, the strong confidence is expected, but it is indeed telling that the Kerry campaign continues to cancel advertising buys in a number of states.

These sites are two of the best places to track the latest election news. Highly recommended!
