The Guardian shows its (visualization) teeth

A few months ago, Xaquín G.V. was hired by Aron Pilhofer as the new editor of visuals at The Guardian. They have a top-notch visualization and infographics team over there, in my opinion (Pablo Gutiérrez, Feilding Cage, and many other talented people are in it,) so it was predictable that we'd start seeing good stuff sooner rather than later.

Check their poll projection series of graphics. If you like Sankey diagrams, you'll be psyched. Oh, and it looks great on a smartphone, as it's responsive. There are a few details here and there that I'm not sure about, but I don't think that this is a time to complain, but to celebrate.
