Election 2016 is a two-in-one app for anyone who wants to (a) keep track of the state of the 2016 U.S. election and other U.S. political issues, or (b) kill some time and entertain themselves.
First and foremost, Election 2016 provides the first and best poll tracker Today View widget in the app store! Powered by HuffPost Pollster, you can select any of over 100 current topics (primary and general elections, favorability ratings, etc.), and the latest poll results will always be available right on your Today screen in an easy-to-read, compact format. You can change the font size, limit the widget to display only the top 1, 2 or 3 rows of results for each poll, and choose any number of polls you want to display on your Today View widget.
Second and also foremost, Election 2016 provides "Flappy Candidate," a ridiculous political homage to the short-lived hit game "Flappy Bird." Play as a 2016 presidential candidate (well, technically, that candidate's head with little tiny wings), and flap your way into the White House by winning 270 electoral votes if you can -- it's not easy!
Election 2016 makes no endorsement or other comment regarding any candidate, political organization or ideology. The poll data is provided with the express permission of HuffPost Pollster. This does not imply any further relationship between HuffPost Pollster and Back Bay Bytes LLC. Back Bay Bytes LLC makes no guarantee of the accuracy of data provided.
The use of candidates' likenesses in the Flappy Candidate game is in no way intended as a political statement -- it's just for fun! ("Solely for entertainment purposes", as they say.)
If you enjoy Election 2016 and find it useful or entertaining, please take a moment to review the app in the App Store. Thanks for your support!

Excellent poll tracker widget!
Finally a simple, compact widget for tracking polls, works as advertised and tons of polls to choose from. Also the game is funny and and it's driving me crazy that I can't beat it!
Widget is exactly what I was looking for. Also happy data is sourced from the best aggregator.
Best app around for tracking all the polls you want to track with daily updates.
Addition plus is the (addicting) game included. Highly recommend this !
