Introducing Politics Home

Topics: 2008 , Politics Home , Pollster.com

If you are a regular reader, you no doubt noticed the new PoliticsHome.com panel that now appears in the right column on every page on Pollster.com.

PoliticsHome.com launched in April 2008 in the United Kingdom and has quickly established itself as a leading resource for constant updates on British politics. This past week, PoliticsHome kicked off Campaign08, a new site devoted to U.S. presidential election news.

Here is how it works: PoliticsHome.com is modeled on the financial news services used by traders that provide links and headlines -- "everything you need to know, each minute" -- on single screen that updates constantly throughout the day. They have a team of political journalists in bureaus in London and Washington that constantly review political news, publishing full news digest each morning at 6 a.m. Eastern time, with live updates until midnight.

They are launching the new site in association with Pollster.com. We will provide PoliticsHome with regular polling updates, and they have created a miniature version of the Campaign08 site that now runs in the right column on every page on Pollster.com. The "Latest Developments" box gets the same minute-by-minute updates as their main site. So now, you can visit Pollster.com for both the latest poll results and a quick, constantly updating digest of all the breaking political news across the web.

PoliticsHome.com will also be introducing some data collection efforts in the coming weeks that will be of interest to Pollster.com readers, so stay tuned.

What great news! Congratulations on this improvement. I particularly like the design - it doesn't make the site feel cluttered, everything is still easy to read, and its easy to scan down the list of links in the PoliticsHome section.

Will PoliticsHome be pulling news from the wire services / MSM / think tanks only or will they also pull from blogs? All blogs are just the big established ones? In other words - what are the parameters of the universe of sources PoliticsHome will draw from / link to?

This is really super. Thank you!!
