Decision '08: Web Resources

The 2008 campaign for US President is in high gear. Gathering credible information on the candidates is an important endeavor, whether for an academic project or simply to become a more informed citizen. Dick Irving, our Subject Specialist in Political Science, Law, and Public Administration maintains an internet resource guide on United States Politics and Elections. Dick evaluated and collected the most authoritative Internet sites with information on political parties, campaign finance, well-known polling entities, and other useful campaign-related topics.

Two new additions to the Politics and Elections page include:

  • Politifact, which can be used to evaluate the accuracy in statements of the candidates. Another site Dick recommends for this purpose is Factcheck.org.
  • YouTube: You Choose ’08, which has campaign videos arranged by both candidate and issues.

Dick Irving is happy to help you with any research on the campaigns or any other related topics. Feel free to set up an appointment with him at the Reference Desk – drop by or call 442-3691. You may also e-mail him directly.
