Data News of the Week | 2016 U.S. Elections: 50 Interactive visualizations…

(This is a repost from Visualoop.com, Written by Tiago Veloso. Find the original here: http://visualoop.com/blog/95859/2016-u-s-elections-50-interactive-visualizations-to-explore )

The Second 2016 Presidential debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be on Sunday October 9, start from 9pm ET (8pm CT, 7pm MT, 6pm PT), at Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO; the Moderator are Martha Raddatz, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent and Co-Anchor of “This Week,” ABC and Anderson Cooper, Anchor, CNN.

As the US Presidential race heats up, check out the top interactive maps and data visualizations already produced.

In just a few hours, the 2016 Presidential election in the United States enters a new level, with the first debate between the Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton and her Republican opponent, Donald Trump. And in this particular election, to “get to another level” is saying a lot, because, let’s face it, the bar is already pretty high – or pretty low, depending on your point of view.

An unprecedented election in so many ways, none of which as significant as the fact that it’s the first time a woman gets nominated by a major american party to run for President. Hillary Clinton will hopefully make history in November, 8, and today she has an unique opportunity take a major step towards that end. The first of three debates will be held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., moderated by Lester Holt, the anchor of NBC Nightly News. It’s expected that a record-breaking audience will follow the event on television, Internet live streams and social media.

We thought this would be a good time to take a look at how the media has been using interactive visualization to tell the stories of these elections. We gathered 50 online visualizations and interactive specials that pretty much cover the uniqueness of this race in all its multiple forms. As expected, all the major news outlets in the US are present in this selection, as well as several international ones, and we close with projects from other websites, companies and independent designers.

And we’ll definitely make a follow-up post closer to November, so feel free to let us know of other interactive visualizations out there about this topic – we’ll probably miss some good ones, so just drop us a message on Twitter or Facebook.
