Naming Names


Naming Names is an awesome interactive visualization created by Jonathan Corum and Farhana Hossain of The New York Times.  The graphic examines how long the presidential candidates spoke at each debate leading up to the Iowa caucuses and who mentioned the other candidates by name during those debates.  The bands around the outside represent each of the debates in order.  The width of the ban shows the amount of words spoken in that debate.  Scrolling over the politician's names isolates the arrows indicating who mentioned them during the debates.  Clearly Mrs. Clinton was viewed as the biggest threat, as her name has by far the most arrows coming from both parties.  (Found through the GOOD Magazine Blog).
