What the media is saying:
George Stephanopoulos, co-anchor of Good Morning America and host of This Week: “Lovin’ PollTracker – can’t beat the one-stop shopping.”
John Gruber, founder of Daring Fireball: “New free app from TPM … I’ve been using it for a few days and it’s great.”
David Corn, Washington Bureau Chief, Mother Jones magazine: “A political junkie's dream come true. With PollTracker Mobile, now you can follow (and obsess over) the most recent polls for the presidential and congressional races on a nanosecond-by-nanosecond basis. Here's an easy-to-use app and a data goldmine — the horse race goes digital!”
Jonathan Alter, journalist and author: “To stay current nowadays, you need 24-hour mobile access to the most current polling data in all the races or you're at serious risk of embarrassing yourself. What if I went on TV and said that Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown were even when she was really up by 2 points? I'd look like an idiot. PollTracker Mobile makes me look smarter than I really am.”
