Best Practices: 
  • Crisp fonts
  • Sorting is perfect
  • Story is simple and clear
Recommended Enhancements:
  • Remove the extra horizontal gridlines from the negative side of the graph
  • Names should be in proper case, not all upper case
  • Color the bar for the real people to distinguish the political parties
  • Add the axis label to the bottom as well so that my eyes don't have to scroll all the way back to the top
