Conservative Woman’s Guide to the Election: Candidate comparison

August 29, 2008 | NeW Staff

Sometimes it is difficult to cut through the rhetoric to discover where the candidates really stand on issues.  I have been trying to find helpful comparison information and remembered a website I have used before, Project Vote Smart.   Project Vote Smart is an organization that seeks to provide unbiased, accurate information about candidates.  Its website provides detailed information about tons of candidates, including biographical information, issue positions, endorsements and interest group ratings.

The “About Project Vote Smart” description reads,

You can learn a lot about the candidates from this website, so I want to encourage you to check it out.
