GZERO’s “The Graphic Truth: Berning early or just Biden time?” shows polling data as of February 3, 2020 of the Democratic frontrunners for the 2020 election. The states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina are chosen due to the fact that they hold the first few primary elections/caucuses in this primary process.
The 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries and caucuses are a series of electoral contests organized by the Democratic Party to elect their nominee for president of the United States in the 2020 U.S. presidential election.
The graphic that accompanies the article provides an effective visual tool for GZERO’s consumers as it cleanly organizes each Democratic presidential candidate with their respective percentage of pledged votes. Color intensity depicts strength or weakness in each state for each of the candidates, as compared to their colleagues, making the graphic easy to understand.
This particular graphic shows us that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the projected frontrunner in the states of Iowa (23.0 percent) and New Hampshire (26.5 percent) while former Vice President Joe Biden leads in Nevada (21.0 percent) and maintains a commanding lead in South Carolina (30.5 percent).
