The first website (called Five-Thirty-Eight.com) is graphically compelling, contains lots of updated information, and is done by someone whose primary job is communicating statistical information. The name comes from the number of electoral votes.
The second website (called Real Clear Politics) has a lot more news, and I like the summary showing how much of a lead each candidate has in contested states. Here's an example of that chart.
And, here is a link to the top-10 election tools on the web.
