Who will be the next US President?

Create your own forecast - with Tableau

Design, Tableau


Are you also discussing who will be the next President of the United States? So are we. But not only that. Our Tableau Workbook Presidential Election 2020 even allows you to make your own prediction.

Florian Rieger, Senior BI Consultant at M2 and Dilyana Bossenz, Visual Consultant at M2, have jointly created this workbook. It is now available on our Tableau Public Account. Thus, anyone who wants to can make a prediction about the course of the 2020 presidential elections - very conveniently, with just a few clicks. Tableau makes it possible. 

As you surely know, the election of the presidential office in the United States is an indirect election, in which the citizens of each state cast ballots for the Electors, which are distributed proportionally among the states. The electors in turn cast their votes directly for the president. The candidate who receives at least 270 of the 538 electoral votes wins the election.

With our Tableau Dashboard you can simulate the next U.S. presidential election on the interactive map of the United States. Simply click on any state on the map to see how it changes the percentage of Democratic or Republican voters. For each state, predict whether the Democrats or Republicans will win that state. Or rate a state as a "toss-up" if you think that the votes will be split between the supporters of the two parties.
