RealClearPolitics is one of the finest polling and news sources on the internet. It predicts election outcomes based on current polling and on historical tendencies for last-minute shifts. Using this model, it predicted an outcome to the 2022 midterm elections more than a month before FiveThirtyEight and other poll aggregators arrived at similar predictions. A flood of largely unverified ballots stuffed into drop-boxes and mailed in by Dems in Arizona, Nevada, and Pennsylvania distorted the reported outcomes to be several percentages off of numerous independent polls. In Georgia, massive early voting that is monitored by race and age is exploited by Dems whereby voters probably feel they do not have a secret ballot.
Based in Chicago and founded by John McIntyre and Tom Bevan in 2000, RealClearPolitics 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 conservative and liberal sources.
RCP's 2016 projections for the presidential election that year were more accurate than the "reputable" Cook Political Report, and far more accurate than FiveThirtyEight in 2016.
