Simulation Walkthroughs

This set of videos provide a quick look at some of the interactive simulations/visualizations that I’ve built to compliment my main “Data Intuition” videos. The links to the simulations/visualizations themselves can be found in the video descriptions.

Simulations - Supplementary Video Walkthrough for Presidential Election Forecast

How do you predict an election outcome? Who is going to be our next President? This video is a walkthrough of a very simple 2020 presidential election model simulation that predicts who will win the election based on current polling data. This is NOT a realistic model. It is meant to give you a sense of how such models would work by changing the inputs. However, if you believe the inputs at the state level, this IS a model of how the electorate would vote right now if an election were going on.

I strongly suggest watching the full video about what simulations are and how they work before you dig into this one. That video is here: https://youtu.be/81aEUYr9mcA
