RealClearPolitics is an online organization based in Chicago, Illinois. Founded by John McIntyre and Tom Bevan in 2000, the website is a comprehensive, real-time, and independent political network. The site features all aspects of politics, from polling, analysis, and news to commentary, policy, and world affairs. In a short amount of time, RCP has achieved a solid reputation as a journalistic favorite, and is famous for its aggregation of various polling agencies to show average performances of candidates.
Its homepage includes links to a selection of articles, most of which are located on other websites, while a few are written by RCP's own staff. The list of articles tends to alternate between right and left wing sources.
RCP's 2016 projections for the presidential election that year were more accurate than the "reputable" Cook Political Report, and this may likely be the case for the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
