The Supreme Court & 2016 Election

With the recent landmark rulings coming out of the Supreme Court these past few weeks I decided to do an analysis of the future and history of the most powerful court in the land. This visualization includes a forecast of when each of the current justices will retire and a history of retired justices. The forecast is based on actuarial tables and historical trend analysis. It predicts that the next president will have the opportunity to appoint possibly 4  total justices to the court. This will dramatically change the makeup of the court and presumably have major implications for various issues. Enjoy.
