2016 Elections, how to get information for your stories

Congratulations student body for being present for one of the craziest election cycles that have happened in America within my lifetime.  With this election the School of Journalism is going to have a pop-up newsroom so that you to can experience the thrill of covering elections.  To help, we here at the library offer these resources:

LibGuide on Campaigns & Electionshttp://guides.library.columbia.edu/usgd/campaigns/home. This page shows resources for exploring different aspects of federal electoral campaigns and elections. This page has links for data on elections, accountability offices, background information, and the news sites that cover elections as well. This is a great catch all resource for election day coverage.

 

Gallup Analyticshttp://www.columbia.edu/cgi-bin/cul/resolve?clio11526215.
This site will give you analysis on almost every topic you can think of.  For instance, Presidential approval is at 50% as of writing this blog post. Thanks Gallup!

 

Exit Pollshttp://www.columbia.edu/cgi-bin/cul/resolve?clio9167879. This E-Book “explores the trends in election day exit polls from their beginning in 1972 to the present, showing changes in the American electorate and its voting patterns.”

Data Cataloghttp://library.columbia.edu/locations/dssc/data/numdata/data-catalog-holdings.html.  This is important for statistical information for cities and states. It also has Gubernatorial, Congressional, and Presidential election data already laid out for you.  How nice is that?

voxgov: http://www.columbia.edu/cgi-bin/cul/resolve?clio10644965.  This site is really helpful in getting information on what is tending in social media.  As of writing this blog law enforcement was the number 6 trending topic.
