How about some diverging stacked bars like: http://public.tableausoftware.com/views/AuthorisingForceinSyria/View

Joe: I find the stacked bars slightly worse than the other options but each of these has weaknesses. Thanks for putting up the alternative.

Stacked bars for each party would be better than the tree map. Humans are better at comparing length than area.

What none of these makes too easy for me is to understand the likelihood of the resolution passing. Something like this makes the projected vote clearer and provides a picture of party breakdown for additional context (and to help understand the party composition of the undecided votes).
