I just read that Obama is 4% ahead of McCain. It seems like every day there’s a new poll that talks about a few percentage points separating the presidential candidates. But what does that mean? At this stage in the election, I really miss Tim Russert who used simple language and easy-to-understand diagrams to describe the complex political environment.
In the spirit of easy-to-use political charts, Yahoo! has put together a really good rich Internet application (RIA) for examining the election state-by-state. It provides a ton of insight into the battle for the White House.
The bottom line: This is a great example of a very useful and usable RIA.
