Yahoo! - Ask America Infographics
Launched in 2010, Ask America was a unique midterm elections hub on Yahoo! News (the #1 news site) which gave a voice to the American voting public through non-traditional polling. Ask America collected data from its millions of users on topics such as the economy, healthcare, immigration and more.
The first graphic the questions â€śWhat are the nationâ€™s most pressing issues?â€ť and simply breaks down the 1,671,267 responses by gender, answer, and, of course, issue at hand. The second, titled â€śU.S. Must Do More for Jobs and Economy,â€ť focused solely on labor and economic issues and received some 108,687 responses.
The third infographic, â€śAmerica Speaks: the Top Issues by Regionâ€ť, illustrates the questions that were answered by the most people, broken down by region and by overarching topic: State of the Union or the Economy. And the fourth infographic, released the day after the November 2 midterm elections, depicted Americaâ€™s view on some of the electionâ€™s key issues.
