It's interesting to see how parties are playing with blogs, mobile phones, viral marketing and all that sort of thing in this election. They're obviously still not trusting too much to it, but since it's relatively cheap, waters are being tested. I wouldn't trust any online resource to be neutral without good evidence to the contrary (such has having existed for some time before the election).
Update I missed the FAQ that talks about some of these points, and atreic mentions that the creator is hatmandu who has posted about it. OK, so given all that I don't think it's a party political trick.
