Subject: My favorite red vs. blue map

Written By: MaxwellSmart on 11/25/04 at 4:19 am


Size of states adjusted to reflect population densities.  There are more red states in the "Strong Bush" category than blue states in the "Strong Kerry" category. 
Most interesting to me is that California and Washington state, stereotyped as raving liberal, are only "Weak Kerry."  Too often California is thought of as just the L.A./San Fran axis, leaving the more conservative inland areas out of the picture entirely.
The map really accentuates the tiny population of the "Strong Bush" red states of the plains and upper mountain regions.  Population-wise, DC is bigger than any one of the states of Idaho, Montana, North or South Dakota, or Wyoming, and is about equal with Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, and Utah.  DC is significantly larger on this map than Alaska.

Ever seen the one that divides America into "The United States of Canada"{Kerry} and "Jesusland"{Bush}? Makes me laugh every time.  ;D
