Bloomberg has created a series of data visualizations illustrating the amount of time presidential candidates spent discussing topics in the most recent Democratic debate. The visualizations show that topics such as foreign policy and democracy replaced healthcare and gun control as the most discussed issues. In addition, the visualizations demonstrate that the debate included discussions of several issues that candidates had previously not discussed at length in debates, including paid family leave, voter suppression, and abortion rights.
