I often look at the Wikipedia pages for individual candidates. They usually have a "political positions" section for major candidates.

Project Vote Smart tries to provide objective information about candidate positions. Also links to other evaluations and additional information.

On the Issues sends out questionnaires and tracks candidate responses and other statements.

I Side With offers a quiz to match people to presidential candidates. It asks a series of questions on popular issues and then tries to find the closest match among the candidates.
