Who Voted No

NYT graphic: Who Voted No. Confusing!


What? The fact that it doesn't show parties for who voted yes implies guilt only for those who voted no. It's a pretty split issue, wouldn't it make more sense to present the information so that people could choose who to hate based on wether or not they thought the bill was good or bad?

it IS confusing. It presents a one-sided, biased version of the information (ie "yes" was the correct vote, so only those who voted NO need be tracked).

Miami has 17 representatives vs. Montana's 1.
