Politico's Presidential Polls

The Politico website tracks statistics on political issues and polls that have been done by other research groups. For this specific webpage, Politico listed the predictive polls at the national level and then by state for presidential candidates in the 2012 election. I thought that it was good that Politico collected polls from so many different organizations, but at the same time I thought that it would have been a lot more interesting if they would have focused on a trend study or time series analysis for the year leading up to the elections. A trend study would have allowed Politico to track the voting intention swings of the general public and possibly connect the results to the timing of political ads, debates, and speeches.
