Who's "a head" in the 2016 Republican polls?

See a month-by-month mashup of the top contenders for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

This infographic shows the monthly rankings of the 2016 Republican candidates according to 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'll update this infographic at the first of each month, or as Real Clear Politics releases its polling data.
