who leads the race for the white house. often, polling information is a week old by the time it's published. three professors at the university of iowa had an idea to look elsewhere for the nation's political pulse. that's why they created a first-of-its-kind website. tv-9's forrest saunders reports. saturday, ian price was using his free time reading to one of his kids at the downtown library.but, look at his shirt, you'll know he's politically involved.

of them? the site collects trending tweets about the ten. also, top trending news. but the site's key feature is these charts. the page analyzes tweets to find which republicans and democrats have the most positive posts. the site then plots the data on the graphs. "all this information really is untapped. there is no portal which can actually allow people to go and look at what are all the conversation s happening on these websites." shafiq says this kind of data is important because the charts give a by the day perspective on the pulse of the nation. some features update even faster. a normal poll would likely take a week or more for results. "polling data is offline. it is slow. it is cumbersome. polling companies will tell you that they cannot repeat the process everyday." the site is up and running as a few weeks ago. that means, guys like ian have another resource while cruising the web for political insight. "i think it's definitely a good gauge to the local polls and the national polls."
