About FP's 2012 Election Coverage

With one year to go until the decisive 2012 presidential election, Foreign Policy introduces its new Election Channel, the only daily resource on the campaign to focus exclusively on where the candidates stand on national security and international affairs. The president of the United States has often been called the president of the world, and never has that been more true than at this time of global crises, making it all the more crucial to understand where the White House candidates come down on critical issues of foreign policy. This channel, dedicated to “the politics of foreign policy,” focuses on daily coverage of the race for the next year, with insider reporting and scoops, commentary from our stable of well-known bloggers, dedicated candidate pages to keep track of individual campaigns and their foreign policy stances, and weekly columns devoted to analyzing how foreign policy is playing on the campaign trail and what’s behind the latest numbers as polling season heats up.
