    I came across this site and found it to be pretty cool. It let's you match up candidates against each other in a head-to-head, general election for president. In doing so, it shows you the states each would prospectively win according to it's current poll, and tallies the electoral college votes to determine a winner. I have no idea regarding the credibility of the site itself, so please keep that in mind.

    It seemed odd to me too. I tried it a second time and I couldn't get the info. Then I realized you have to pay to get it. WTF is that? Oh well. Too bad to cuz it was cool to see which states were going where.

    I think it relies on the latest polling, which is some cases are months or even years old. According to it, Obama wouldn't even win Massachusetts against Giuliani. (He'd only win his home state of Illinois.) And John Edwards would do even worse!

    Thanksfully I put in the disclaimer about not knowing how credible it was. I'm not sure what it's deal is. I'm not sure if they do that so as to sucker you into signing up. Too bad though, cuz the format was pretty cool.
