Visualize How Obama Won

Here's a neat tool from the New York Times that breaks down how demographics broke down in the recent Democratic primary.

Click on categories or arrows to switch views. Rollover individual states to get their specific numbers.

Not only is this tool informative, it's also kind of cool in the way boxes fly around as you switch from one stat to another.

It's a terrific example of how computers and the Internet are expanding the ways we can visualize information. Just think of how you used to have to look at info like this before: a long list of boring numbers.

Now that info can be presented in a way that's visually appealing and that makes digging down into it easier than ever.
