With exactly five weeks to go, Americans will once again be going to the voting booth. The stakes are higher this time with the current state of the economy. All I know is whoever wins, it won’t be a fun job for the next 4 years.
If you enjoyed the Olympic Results Tracking presented by iDashboards last month, you’ll surely enjoy this site. WARNING: you may end up spending hours analyzing the statistics.
2008 USA Presidential Election Dashboard provides a detailed breakdown of candidate support by race, age, state, gender, marital status and educational background.
As you can see, it combines the benefits of business intelligence with a user-friendly interface to provide users with an easy-to-navigate, reliable source for up-to-date information on the 2008 Presidential election. It also provides a demographic breakdown of the voters’ stance over the previous weeks.
Hopefully, the Presidential Election Dashboard’s statistics will provide a better decision making tool on voting day. If the voters show up.
I like the week by week changes and it just goes to show you one good (or bad!) debate can really affect the voters’ stance.
Gone are the days of fancy charts and graphs with static data. Dynamic data visualization is where it’s at these days.
To repeat my review last month, here are several reasons why I liked iDashboards, just to name a few:
1) Flash based (not Microsoft Silverlight) and browser independent (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.)
2) Platform independence (i.e. Windows or Linux servers)
3) Data retrieval from multiple databases – which is important since it’s pulling data from several venues
4) Seamless reporting features with Microsoft Excel for those who still want the classic reporting
