My goal with these 'Election Specials' is to advise my readers where to focus their attention as they analyze the presidential race.

Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 02, 2012

Gary D. Halbert has announced the launch of a new blog dedicated to covering the ever-changing presidential election race between incumbent president, Barack Obama, and his challenger, Mitt Romney. The new blog will be published each Wednesday as part of Mr. Halbert’s "Between the Lines" blog that offers uncensored opinions on economic, investment and political issues.

Regarding the new blog, Halbert said, “Between now and November 6, my goal with these ‘Election Specials’ is to advise my readers where to focus their attention as they analyze the presidential race. While there will be elections in all 50 states and DC, the outcome of the race will be decided by just a handful of key states.”

Historically, the incumbent president should be enjoying a comfortable lead (at least 5-7 points) in the national polls at this time of the year. Even Jimmy Carter was up double digits over Ronald Reagan at this point in 1980. Yet Halbert notes that President Obama is now statistically tied with Mitt Romney in most polls. The new blog will delve into the possible reasons for why the poll results are lining up as they are, and what it might mean for the election.

These “Election Specials” also offer readers the ability to cut through the bias and omissions of the mainstream media. Another benefit is that the blog will condense the results of the many presidential election polls into more manageable summaries. Much of the attention will be focused at the state level, where the election will really be won or lost.

In addition to his blog, Mr. Halbert publishes a weekly newsletter that has been enjoyed by the investment community for over 30 years. Once reserved only for his clients in a newsletter format, Gary’s Forecasts & Trends E-Letter is now distributed to a large nationwide online community. He analyzes the latest economic news, markets and political trends to bring you stories that have an impact on your lifestyle, your future and your pocketbook.

Visitors to can subscribe to Between the Lines and receive e-mail updates when new articles are posted on the blog.
