Ok with the US elections in full affect the polls are important. One of the best sources for an informative viewpoint is Nate Silver Five Thirty Eight blog. I remember reading it during the last election cycle. Its become of the most popular political blogs in the USA although its about numbers not really politics.
Unfortunately for us but likely ok for Nate the New York Time loved the blog and they now host it. The problem is that the New York Times allows a limited amount of free articles per month, 10 is the number.
So you can quickly read 10 very good articles and want more. Here’s my easy trick to read the most recent articles for free if you have already read 10 articles in one month. This usually works a few hours after the article has been posted to the website.
1. Load the 538 blog. http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/
2. Find the article you want to read but don’t click the link.
3. Hover over the title and copy the link.
4. Open another window in your browser.
5. Go to http://google.com
6. Type in the following exactly in the search box SITE:
7. Than paste the link that you copied earlier.
8. Than press enter
9. Hover over the right of the linked article in the Google results (those two arrows) and than look over to the right and look for the word CACHED. Click the word CACHED.
If Google has cached (visited) the article they have a copy on their servers. Read away for free.
