I actually prefer the chronological ordering (bar chart at clarin.com). If Clarín.com had split the third bracket into "Hace dos años" and "Hace más de tres años", the outcome of the online-poll would have been more interesting...

Love your blog,

I like the original square chart better than your rendition, because I think it does make sense to see how the numbers add up to 100%. This is especially interesting when you're looking at who has a majority, or which parties might have a majority when forming a coalition.

Do you have any references on the decile plot? I only found them in one book so far, and that's just a book with lots of examples of diagrams and illustrations. The 45 degree thing seems to be rather common, too (from the small sample that I have seen). I wrote a short piece on "square pie charts" recently.
