What is the Daily Kos?

A blog created in 2002 by Markos Moulitsas — a.k.a. “kos” –…Daily Kos has grown in those five years to the premier political community in the United States, with daily traffic between 2-4 million visits. Among luminaries posting diaries on the site are President Jimmy Carter, Sen. Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and dozens of other senators, congressmen, and governors. But, even more exciting than that, tens of thousands of regular Americans have used Daily Kos to lend their voice to a political world once the domain of the rich, connected, and powerful.

Daily Kos has six paid staffers and continues to ramp up its features, from top-tier independent polling (about 100 polls in 2008) to its groundbreaking Electoral Scoreboard.
