Earlier today I was poking through FiveThirtyEight and read a super interesting article chronicling Elizabeth Warren’s rise in popularity since the first Democratic Presidential Debate. Warren, on the strength of particularly high favorable ratings and relatively low unfavorable ratings, currently leads all Democratic candidates in Net Favorability, with a +53 margin.
After reading through the table in the article for all 20 major candidates (which is super useful, to be fair), I got to thinking - I bet there’s a better way to show this data! Hence the chart above - a quick-and-dirty remix that makes understanding Net Favorability a little easier. That’s all I’ve got this time, but more 2020 coverage to come I’m sure!
