where can i find a site that has non-biased information on those running in upcoming election?

I'm having a difficult time to find a site that will show where all those running in the upcoming election stand on all the issues and was wondering if anyone knows of a site(s) that will help in seeing what the candidates plan to do if elected?

  • You can use a candidate calculator to see how your beliefs stack up to the candidates. I recommend the www.vajoe.com. Or you can use fact checkers, there is factcheck.org and politifact.com. Both are pretty good, but neither is "unbiased". Just be a careful reader of the literature, if the site is simply saying "the campaign manager stated ____" or "the candidate says ____" but they have no real data to back it up, then its likely just opinion not fact. So just be a careful consumer and you should be all set. Good luck mama!

  • The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, has fought since 1920 to improve our systems of government and impact public policies through citizen education and advocacy. The League's enduring vitality and resonance comes from its unique decentralized structure. The League is a grassroots organization, working at the national, state and local levels.

  • LOWV doesn't endorse any candidate, which is always a good sign of an objective resource.

    www.factcheck.org is a great site for finding out the truth about the candidates' videos, policies, claims, statements made during the debates, etc. Pretty objective and proven to be trustworthy and reliable.

  • How about www.procon.org? Sometimes it takes a while to sort through all the info there, but I like the fact that you can find out about the senators' voting records.

  • I wouldn't go for the league of woman voters site if you are pro-life ... It is crap! WWW.factcheck.orghas been one of the best I have been at, but I am not positive it is all true. Do not use snopes.com that is one of the worst ones. And don't be fooled by some sites that look official but are just blog sites that look legitimate. Hope that helps. And as far as new channels, Fox may favor McCain a bit, but they do talk fair and balanced about both candidates.
