Comparing 2012 and 2016


I thought it would be interesting to look at the Clinton v Trump trend chart side by side with the 2012 Obama v Romney trend chart. I’ve taken both and limited for the span of time between January 1st and August 8th for each year. Charts after the jump …

You can click through on either chart to see the interactive versions of the charts. (Note that the head to head numbers at the upper right of each chart are for the most recent polls. So with Obama v Romney that’s the poll average as of election day, not the end point of this chart, which is August 8, 2012.)
