Welcome to the new SoapBlox-powered, diary-enabled version of the Swing State Project! If you’re seeing this entry at the top of your screen, that means we’ve just switched over to the new site. Things may look a bit “empty” around here at the moment, but new stories will be appearing soon.
Please feel free to sign up for a new User ID (your old TypeKey IDs won’t work) in the right-hand sidebar. Once you’ve done that, go ahead and start posting diaries! Our only request is that you stick to diaries which relate to the topics that this site covers: campaigns, elections, electoral strategy, polls, etc.
In other words, If you want to write about the Iraq war, you are probably better off doing so at DailyKos. But if you’ve got, say, a poll which shows how the Iraq war is affecting the race in a particular state or district, then by all means post about that here.
No matter what, just go have fun!
