Political DataViz: How Voting Blocs Have Shifted From the ’80s to Now


Some of you may be wondering why I am devoting my blog posts lately to the midterm election that just occurred. My reasoning for this is that I think some of the most creative data visualizations are created right before and after a major election cycle.

Today, I am showcasing some charts that were created by The New York Times which illustrate how voting blocs have shifted from the 1980s to now.

I found these to be very interesting and important.

I hope you enjoy reviewing these.
