Donut Chart and Geofacets with Images

In this post, I recreate the donut chart overlaid on geo facets. Based on a friend’s feedback, I now add pictures of winners of each state.

Getting the data

As of the date of this writing (21st November 2020), the results of the US Presidential elections have not tallied. The counting is still going on in a few states. However, it is unlikely that the results will change significantly from this point onward. I decided to get data from this Github repo, which scrapes data from NYT. The data is at county-level: https://github.com/favstats/USElection2020-NYT-Results

Final plot

This is the plot I created. I have used Biden and Trump pictures from www.pixabay.com. Check it out for a lot of free, attribution-free images. I also tried using Trump and Biden icons but it did not work well. I got Trump and Biden icons from here respectively:
