I like http://www.electoral-vote.com/. It has a lot of information, especially comparisons of polls from a wide variety of sources. It is updated pretty regularly, and has some fairly good analysis to go with the numbers as well. The guy running the site leans towards the left, but his analysis is non-partisan and among the most intelligent and well thought out that I've seen. The guy is Andrew Tanenbaum, a minor geek hero as well, if that makes a difference :)

Delegates are all that matter at this point:

Here's one scorecard:
http://www.electionprojection.com/primarytable.html

a more complex card at CNN here that includes the "Super Delegates":

Or here, at wiki, for the Dems:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D...tial_primaries%2C_2008

at wiki for the Republicans:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R...tial_primaries%2C_2008


Now, if you want to understand the differences in scores you may see around the net, read this small blurb explaining the "Super Delegate" system:

"235 Democratic House members and nonvoting delegates, 49 senators, the District of Columbia's two shadow congresspeople and 28 governors, a total 314 in all, are automatically delegates to the convention. These "superdelegates," almost 16 percent of the 2,025 delegates (4,049 total) a candidate will need to secure the party's presidential nomination, while officially uncommitted and thus "unreplaceable", can publicly endorse a candidate, adding to his and her total. As of January 5, 2008, the totals were: Hillary Clinton 154; Barack Obama 50; John Edwards 33; Bill Richardson 19; Dennis Kucinich 1. In addition, all members of the Democratic National Committee are automatically delegates, and there are a small number of distinguished party leaders and other unpledged delegates, leading to a total of 852 unpledged delegates"

IMO, the system has some pretty major flaws...

I generally get all my information from realclearpolitics.com. I used to go to electoral-vote.com but I like rcp better now.

RCP is pretty good, but I can't stand their website design...it's like they tried to save money by having someone's teenage son do it. But if the site doesn't drive you bonkers, they do have a lot of good information.
