More electoral mapmanship

Monday,  11/08/04  09:45 PM

If you enjoyed the electoral mapmanship from the other day, you'll really like  these really cool maps, and especially this one:

USA election 2004 proportional county-by-county

This map has distorted the shape of each state to show the population of the state rather than the land area, and the degree of blue / red / purple is determined by proportion of voting.  Obviously this is a better representation of the distribution of votes, and gives a lie to the "two countries" theory.  The center of the country is redder and the northeast and west are bluer, but you can see there is a pretty deep division all through.  A much healthier mix than the simple "red states" map would imply.
