Ballot Lead Calculator

Tired of hearing how candidate X is Y points ahead of candidate Z? Are your curious if that candidate really does have the lead? It turns out that the Ballot Lead Calculator determines what the sampling error is for each poll you enter.

Next time you check out a site like FiveThirtyEight or RealClearPolitics, just plug in the percentages for the two candidates, and then input the sample size. Voila.
