Say Hello to the General Election Cattle Call!

Posted by DavidNYC

I'm very pleased to announce a new recurring feature debuting today on the Swing State Project: The General Election Cattle Call. Using a strictly empirical methodology, Chris Bowers, a longtime regular poster at the DailyKos, will put his finger to the political wind to tell us where he thinks the election stands.

A little background: During the primary season, Chris created the original Empirical Cattle Call in an attempt to use hard numbers to cut through the endless speculative chatter about who the Democratic nominee would be. For this project, he's refined and updated his methodology, and he'll be posting GECC updates whenever new polling data warrants it.

For a sneak preview, check out Chris's DKos diary here. Chris will provide a full introductory post (complete with methdology) here later today. Poll junkies should find the GECC especially rewarding, and I know it will provide a valuable contribution to our understanding of this year's presidential race.

And let me also say "Thank you!" to Chris, and welcome aboard!
