Hi,
I've added the 2010 Senatorial Polls pages.  I'm not 100% sure I've cleaned all the bugs in adding the special election support.  Please let me know if you find any issues. 

Please take your time when entering these contests - and also please enter the details of multiple match-ups in the details box where appropriate (to allow the figures to be changed more easily later when the actual candidate is known - for trend graphs).

Thanks,
Dave

Please Note that I have updated this script with several enhancements -> the most notable being that there is now a field to select the name of the candidates when entering the polls.  When entering polls, please choose the candidate match-up that is most likely at the time the poll was taken.  This now shows the correct candidates in the summary pages for the polling data entered and helps provide a nice history of the contest as the dynamics unfold (and 2010 has been quite dynamic). 

Note that I have not filled the new data table with all the candidate names - you can help fill these out as new polls are entered or as you update the existing polls.

Another feature is the ability to view all the polls you entered by clicking on your name in any give poll summary page.  Please help update the polls in the database with the correct names by going to your polls and edit them, choose or edit names, and click "Edit Poll".

Please note that I have edited many polls to improve their quality.  Please, when entering a poll, include the "About this Poll" information in the Poll Article and data for the matchups, preferably the question as well.

Note that I have not tested the entry of new polls as yet.  Let me know if you find any issues.
Thanks,
Dave

Ignore

So far, here are the states that I've updated the polls for, so all of these states should have candidates' names already set up for when you enter the polls.  Please let me know if there's a problem with any of these states:

Senate:
Alaska
Hawaii
Oregon
Idaho
Utah
South Dakota
Kansas
Oklahoma
Alabama
Washington
Vermont

California - up through March 15th.

Thanks Inks -
to all - be sure when entering a new poll - choose the name from the pull-down menu first - if the name is not there, then type it in the text box - we have the same candidates entered multiple times for several states.

Thanks,
Dave
