It seems like the 2016 presidential election has been underway for years and, based on how many candidates jumped in months ago, it has. But we're still early into it, with only two states so far weighing with actual votes.

So, you can only guess which candidates will hold on long enough to make it to the general election in November. Yet, Facebook may have some insight.

Judging by this really cool interactive election 2016 map, you can see which candidates are doing well, nationwide and in your home state. Facebook, in partnership with FiveThirtyEight, created this map of candidates' Likes.

So, who's likely to be elected? Based on this unscientific compilation of Likes, Republican hopefuls Ben Carson and Donald Trump, and Democratic Bernie Sanders are out front nationwide, with 26%, 23% and 23%, respectively. So, who's out front where you live?
