State Statistics and Pointless Pictorial Portrayals

Infographics, three dimensional swingometers and election straw polls will burden our lives until the general election on May 6th. Don't be bamboozled with flashy graphics that tell you nothing or figures that prove that women who wear bras are statistically more likely to suffer from hay fever than those that don't (or that girls are, in fact, evil).

Informative and fancy, though, is the constituency map by The Times newspaper. You can view each constituency with a brief description of the local topography and how the constituents voted in the past and the predicted outcome this time round.
