  • This app is awesome

    It's called "Election '08" as far as my iPhone says... and I've
    been using it for a few weeks and loving it.
    I'm not usually really big on polling data (since most young
    people have only cell phones and those can't be called by
    pollsters I don't think it's very accurate) but this thing is
    addictive. I check it almost every day to see which states
    have shifted and where they've been. Highly recommended.

    The graphic above is actually from POLE TRACKER by SLATE.
    The data available from that app is MUCH better than
    Electoral '08. There is not app "ELECTION '08" as far as I can
    tell.

    POLE TRACKER is the one to get. The other app is a looser.
