For the third year in a row, the Super Bowl was the highest-rated show in America. More than 111 million people tuned in to watch the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots on Feb. 5, 2012, and The Daily wanted to tell them everything they needed to know. I worked with the design team to compile an infographic of fun facts and game day resources ahead of the big game.

On Dec. 3, 2011, former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain announced that he would suspend his campaign for the 2012 Republican nomination. Six turbulent months of pizza jokes, staff shakeups, poll peaks and valleys and sexual harassment claims: Cain’s campaign, once a joke in political circles, turned out to be quite the thrillride.
Below, see the infographic I cooked up with The Daily’s design team, charting Cain’s rise and fall in pursuit of the presidency.
Come Nov. 6, 2012, states will light up red or blue depending on who wins the vote, but right now it’s all about green. And Herman Cain’s campaign is gaining momentum in the polling as well as at the bank.
Mark Block, the former pizza magnate’s campaign manager, said his candidate has raised more than $3 million in October. That is a huge jump from Cain’s previous fundraising total for the year — $5.3 million as of the Federal Election Commission’s Sept. 30 filing deadline. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has raised $32.2 million, the most of the GOP contenders. Cain ranks fifth in fundraising.
