Elections 2020, how to read data?
I decided to post this article from The New York Times because i found it very detailed and quite simply to read. It's an incredibly complex information but using datavisualization,maps and letting the users interact with the news in my opinion this article can actually answer to all your questions. In this page you can interact with lot of data:you can choose four differents maps to better understad the results, you can choose to see house or senate, the exit polls compared to the factual votes, and some detaileted information on the single states.
At the end of the page, you can go to the New York Times' political analysis focused on four states: Florida, Michigan, Georgia, Pennsylvania
In this Washington Post article, the focus is on the difference in votes from 2016. It's interesting how the Washington Post's graphics team visualized this information.
Using a easy-readable format like "scrollytelling" they catch the users' attention with blue and red "rivers" to show which country has been flipped by Joe Biden and his team.
For americans, this is the most important information, and actually the key for Biden's victory.
Something sad is happening in the United States these days and it's important to talk about it.
Donald Trump is saying he will not admit his defeat because of some errors in the counts. This is not true, and what he is saying is very dangerous for everyone.
For the first time ever, two of the biggest tv interrupted the president while he was speaking, because he was saying lies over lies.
For that I decided to post this article from Reuters who explain how it works the count of the votes in the Usa, with a focus on this year which is, experts say, can be much more different from all the past elections due to the amount of the mail/remote votes due to the virus.
