Are Our 2008 Tracking Statistics on Track? Comparisons to Google and Google Trends

We’ve been compiling tracking statistics on our sales of items in support of the various possible 2008 Democratic presidential contenders since November of 2004. I have a pretty good personal sense of what these stats mean: they are the expressions of committed support for presidential contenders, the kind of support so committed that it is [...]

Tracking the Democrats: The Year so Far

Since the beginning of the year, Irregular Times has accelerated its reporting of tracking statistics for Election 2008 Democratic contenders to a weekly schedule to reflect the increased pace of the race.

2008 Running Mate Combination Statistics (September 2006 to March 2007)

Since September of 2006, we’ve been running a shop containing bumper stickers, buttons and magnets that support various Democratic running mate combinations for the presidential race in 2008. Obama-Edwards 2008? Sure. Gore-Kucinich 2008? OK. Kucinich-Richardson 2008? I don’t understand that pairing myself, but we’ve got it too, just in case. In fact, our goal is [...]

For two years and four months now, Irregular Times has been tracking one measure of strength of 2008 contenders that the media doesn’t touch. Rather than track public opinion polls of citizens or people deemed “likely voters” through econometric models, we’re looking at a more simple but possibly more important measure: the number of bumper [...]

Tracking the 2008 Democrats, Week by Week (1/21/07 – 3/3/07)

Since November 2004, we have been tracking the strength of Democratic contenders for the presidency in 2008 through a simple but effective measure: the number of bumper stickers, campaign buttons, posters and t-shirts that we sell in support for each of those Democrats. Instead of the weak and changeable indicator of an opinion given over [...]

Tracking Stats for Election 2008: Candidates’ Share of Democratic Sales in February 2007

It’s March now, and the winds are blowing outside my door and across the political landscape, which is littered with the debris of beached campaigns: Evan Bayh. Russ Feingold. John Kerry. Tom Vilsack. Mark Warner. Electoral wrecks each one, destined to be picked over by the scavengers of history. But still others remain, and these [...]

Bill of Rights Poster Project: All Out.

Update: We’re all out.

An American patriot is someone who supports and defends the dream of the United States of America. The dream of America is encapsulated in its organizing document, the U.S. Constitution. It is the Constitution that every President, Senator and Representative solemnly swears to support and defend.

The Constitution describes the enduring [...]
