Yahoo News teamed up with Yahoo Buzz to come up with a Political Dashboard for anybody interested in following the traveling circus, er, race to the White House.
In addition to the latest polls, the dashboard also tracks current search buzz for each candidate as Yahoo users look for more information. It also keeps track of how much money each candidate has raised.
All of the major presidential candidates have an online presence, but their current online strategies are not reaching 42 percent of voters who use the Internet for information about politics, according to a study from iCrossing "How America Searches: Election 2008."
YouTube is diving into political waters with their voter education initiative YouTube You Choose 08. The new initiative is designed to allow political candidates to communicate with voters about their campaigns using video.
2008 presidential hopefuls who currently have their own channel on YouTube are Republicans Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and Mitt Romney. The Democrats are Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Edwards, Barack Obama and Bill Richardson.
