Chart notes

This chart reflects the odds that are updated every 5 minutes on the main page of

These charts normally update every 6 hours. During some debates and election nights they'll update every 20 minutes. Although the data is recorded every 5 minutes, the longer time is necessary for the charts to keep the data files posted online from getting too large and hard for browsers to display.

More info about why these odds are likely the best predictor of the next President, and how they are generated, can be found on the site's about page.

Chart software is provided by Google Charts, and chart code is based on a template by asgallant.
