Election results cartogram

Election results cartogram

I’m fascinated by all the different ways there are to visualize data – here’s a really cool cartogram by Mark Newman of the University of Michigan (co-author of Atlas of the Real World). His representation of the election results illustrates the complexity of the numbers, much more so than the usual red state/blue state model. Plus it’s kind of creepy looking, always a plus.
