    Gadgets and gizmos and data sets

    Post up the go-to data sets and widgets you like to consult for background in your political posting.

    I found this helpful today, and bookmarked it:

    Party Affiliation | Gallup Historical Trends


    This thread is for folks to add to as they think of potentially useful resources.

    For studies and such I search my universities library archive which is linked to most other universities in the nation and I can pull up pretty much any study out there in a matter of minutes.

    For current events I simply google it and see the story then verify it by a few different sources.

    Things that are just general political discussion I will go to wiki and use their sources to look up things I think will
    be used in the argument coming up.

    Rarely do I ever post something without a preplanned response ready.

    The Wiki version includes things like how governorships and state legislatures the different parties have controlled over the years:

    Trump Golf Count


    Current count:

    78 Visits to golf clubs since inauguration, with evidence of playing golf on at least 36 visits.

    Cost to Taxpayer: At least $83,447,575

    Why we are doing this
    ----

    "I'm going to be working for you. I'm not going to have time to go play golf." --Donald J. Trump, August, 2016

    With regard to so much more than golf, our President is an unabashed liar. View the full list of Trump's golf outings here, and see this explanation for more info.
