Election Websites

In this past 10 years many websites have been developed that track presidential election polls. As I recall both 538 and Real Clear Politics were early and influential, and helped usher in this new era of polling.


I have three current favorites – and each has slightly different presentations:


Economist - https://projects.economist.com/us-2020-forecast/president?utm_campaign=checks-and-balance&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_source=salesforce-marketing-cloud – I particularly find helpful the bottom portion of the 4th box, which shows electoral vote by states ordered by win probability


Five Thirty Eight - https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-election-forecast/ - In the 4th box, labeled “The winding path to victory” there is a snake chart that shows the states ordered by win probability, with a clear view of the number of electoral votes by state.


Financial Times - https://ig.ft.com/us-election-2020/ - uses Real Clear Politics data, and shows in the second section states by margin of vote, while also showing the number of electoral votes at stake.
