Just in time for those awkward Thanksgiving dinners where you have to sit next to that uncle whose political views are diametric opposites from yours, here are a pair of infographics (created in OnePager, of course) that show how the US presidential candidates from each party have stacked up against each other month-by-month.

These infographics are based on monthly average polling data from Real Clear Politics.

The size of each candidate’s head is proportional to their polling numbers relative to the first-place contender at the beginning of each month. For example, on November 1, 2015, RCP reported that Donald Trump polled an average of 26.6% while Ben Carson polled an average of 23.6%. As a result, Carson’s head is 88.7% the size of Trump’s in November.

We realize that almost all of you use OnePager exclusively for work-related purposes, but sometimes it’s a good way to make your relatives squirm, too.
