How to track the election (or not) via blogs
By Charlene Li
In light of the political coverage blackout until the polls close, info-starved politicos are hitting the Internet, especially political blogs like Instapundit, Daily Kos, Eschaton, Wonkette, are slowing down or even just plain inaccessible This is unfortunate, as it's been a god-send to have their updates. A byproduct, which http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/5445086/ also noticed, is that it appears many bloggers are just watching and waiting -- and not posting much. In fact, is anyone getting much work done today?!?
The interesting thing is I haven't visited many of the sites directly today -- I've been "reading" them via their RSS feeds, which are coming through just fine. Also, I set up a feed from Feedster to search on the term "exit poll".
Here's the most recent exit poll I've been able to find at Slate -- you'll have be to really, really patient and it will come up. And as a caveat, here's a good overview of why exit polls are not reliable.
