2016 U.S. Presidential Election - 3D Atlas
This is a model of the 2016 U.S. presidential election map. With a 3D visualization we can combine the geographic accuracy of a traditional election map and the electoral weight shown with a cartogram. This combination would be impossible with a single 2D representation.
The states are laid out geographically as on a traditional map. The height of each state is the state’s electoral votes. The states are color coded by which candidate is leading in the polls:
Solid Blue: Clinton is leading strongly
Medium Blue: Leans towards Clinton (CO, MI, NH, PA)
Light Blue: Battleground state where Clinton currently has the advantage (FL, NC, NV)
Solid Red: Trump is leading strongly
Medium Red: Leans towards Trump (GA, IA)
Light Red: Battleground state where Trump currently has the advantage (AZ, OH)
