Just so you know[edit]

Just so you know, I am adding the polls in backwards chronological order. I will probably also add electoral college projections for each head-to-head matchup, eventually. I would love to represent these graphically (red/blue maps), but I don't know how, so I would love it if someone could help with that. I am not including polls of candidates who are not in the race (i.e., Al Gore), mostly because I don't see the point and I don't have time.Doktorliability (talk) 04:05, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Electoral Map[edit]

Who are the contestants in this hypothetical map? Is it based on all "viable" candidates of one party (or all polled) beating all the candidates of another party - in the most recent poll?Doktorliability (talk) 05:41, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

I have been wondering about it too. An electoral map would only make sense with 2-way matchups. As such a single electoral map would only be reasonable if it is comparing the Democratic nominee versus the Republican nominee. Since we don't know who they're going to be , it seems rather odd to me that a single electoral map exists at all. As for who it could be comparing, my guess would have to be that it's something like Clinton vs. Romney. Mecaterpillar (talk) 08:28, 23 January 2008 (UTC)


Suggestions[edit]

Can someone remove all of the match up polls that aren't between Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton & John McCain. McCain is the only one who can statistically win the nomination. Also, all polls before January 1, 2008 should be removed. Also, all states should be listed and ready for polls to be added. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.38.162.16 (talk) 00:17, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Compilation[edit]

Could someone provide a compilation of the data in chart form (similar in content to the map), showing a) total electoral votes for each candidate where polling differences are greater than 5%, as well as total electoral votes for each candidate for all polled states? 134.197.22.5 (talk) 16:59, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

How is this article that we are discussing different from this article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statewide_opinion_polling_for_the_United_States_presidential_election%2C_2008

Minnesota[edit]

The electoral map is inaccurate in this area according to the polling on the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ChPr (talkcontribs) 00:21, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
