Follow the 2012 elections with the Google Politics election tracker

tl;dr -check out Google’s awesome political election tracker

I’m a political junkie, so I’m following this year’s Republican primary process with the fervor with which I, also a baseball fanatic, follow baseball – which is to say, very much. And the main things in election season to watch out for are the elections themselves – in this year’s case, each state’s primary in which the Republican candidates compete.

These elections are awesome, but to fully enjoy them I need stats. I need results. I need data. I need cool graphs. I need a great political tracker. So look what I found:

Yup, as if search, email, books, phones, and social networking weren’t enough, Google’s developed an awesome election tracker where you can follow each state’s primary election results by county and candidate. With this awesome tool you can see:

  • Who won each state
  • Who won each county and what the vote spread was
  • What percent of the total vote is in
  • The latest news
  • Each candidate’s stand on the issues
  • The standings – each candidate’s delegate total

I’ve used other trackers like CNN’s and MSNBC’s, but they’re really bulky and slow. Google Politics gives me everything I need (no less, no more) in an easy-to-use interface. I must admit, I like the cool colors and map.

So what are you waiting for? There’s always new stuff happening in the world of politics, so keep an eye on Google’s election tracker!
