Even better, a cartogram with state area proportional to Electoral votes is updated at Andy Tanenbaum's electoral-vote.com with each day's worth of new polls . (Do try use "next" link past the current chart while there.)


I've been following the daily polls on fivethrityeight as well and I'm glad for their analysis as well.

One thing that could help the tables at the beginning of the article might be the inclusion of sparklines. While that wouldn't give as good of an overall snapshot like the Political Arithmetik chart, it would at least give some much-needed historical context to the numbers with a minimum of added 'ink.'

The state borders on the lower graph are too thick.
