Have you been following the lead up to the 2016 United States presidential election? It's been one of the most polarizing races in recent memory, fueled by an incessant news cycle following every move by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Both sides have given pretty compelling reasons not to trust the other - from the release of confidential and damning emails on the democrats' side to the wildly offensive opinions and seemingly thoughtless words of the republican candidate.

No matter which side of the aisle you sit on, it's always incredibly interesting to look at the numbers and public sentiment leading up to the USA voting in November. Established in 2008, Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight covers a variety of topics including politics, sports, science, economics, and pop culture. Right now, their most interesting feature is their 2016 Election Forecast. Using various polling models and data from several different polling agencies, this interactive feature displays polling possibilities through visually appealing charts, graphs, and distributions. It uses incredibly sophisticated development to pull statistics from a huge amount of data, distilling often obfuscated information into easy-to-process visuals and numbers.

Give it a look - there's a lot of interesting information hidden behind those numbers, especially when you compare the timeline of how odds have changed over media coverage.
