ENTRIES TAGGED "election visualization"
A New York Times map visualizes the shift in Republican and Democratic votes from 2008 to 2012.
To visualize the US presidential election results from yesterday, the New York Times put together a series of maps showing the results from various angles, including overall results by state, by county, and by size of lead. The Times also looked at the shift in Republican and Democratic votes compared to the 2008 election. The following map shows that shift — the longer the arrow, the bigger the shift; the overall shift toward Republican is interesting given the Democratic win yesterday.
Hovering over arrows pulls up details comparing the 2008 votes to the 2012 votes — and you can click to zoom in on a particular area.
