    2.Earmarks are a hot topic in the current U.S. Presidential election. You can visit the web site earmarkwatch.org to investigate those spending measures inserted by members of Congress into bills that direct taxpayer dollars to their pet projects.

    3.University of Utah computer scientists have written software they hope will eventually allow anyone to interactively and visually analyze election results, political opinion polls or other surveys.

    4.This interactive visualization widget provides an overview of the predicted outcome of the U.S. presidential election. The rows depict the results from different news agencies (The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, etc.) and the columns represent the different U.S. states

    5.perspctv.com, is an informational dashboard that summarizes and graphs the Internet activity relating to the 2008 presidential elections.
