Are the Polls Doing a Good Job of Predicting Election Results?



After Donald Trumps loss in Iowa, I have been curious how good of job the polls are doing at predicting election results. To visualize this I took the Real Clear Politics average and the actual election results for Iowa and New Hampshire. Below, you are able to find a few visualizations that help to show the differences between the two.




The data for these visualizations come from the Real Clear Politics website. Excel was used to edit the data. Tableau was used to create the visualizations.
