With the midterm elections in the U.S. just six weeks away, everyone is wondering how the balance of power between Republicans and Democrats will shake out after November 2. To make tracking the blues and reds a little easier for armchair pundits, Google've partnered with some of the most respected names in politics—Cook, Rothenberg, CQ-Roll Call and RealClearPolitics—to put their ratings in the same place and on the same map. "The map initially shows loads with states shaded according to one of the sources' ratings of Senate race; click links on left to switch to House or Governor races, or to switch sources. To compare ratings head-to-head, click a given state or district, and you'll see ratings from each source displayed."

This gadget is powered by the highly flexible yet simple-to-build-on Fusion Tables, which directly integrates into Google Maps API v3.
