Hey, anyone have the demographics for Utah's new congressional districts? 
Like this stuff? http://www.census.gov/mycd/

Thanks! 

Hold on, I was going by 2010 numbers.  These are 2013 estimates, if I read correctly.

Remember, no one can draw gerrymanders like Fuzzy can!


1992 Presidential Election, Results by Congressional District




I also have to give a shout out to 1968.  The districts were rather simple, but it was my first big piece!

what was the data source? the lower threshold for showing up on the map?

The source was the 1976 Almanac of American Politics.  Is that what you were wondering?

What does the white mean? That the level of minorities are so low or something?

Yes, basically non-existent.  

I was wondering why it was 1974 congressional districts. That explains it.

Odd that ND doesn't show up for Native Americans. Perhaps it is a 5% threshold?

Even if only 1% of the population had been native American, it would have shown up.  Maybe it was an error on the part of the book?

Btw, in the 1980 census they said that 3% of North Dakota's residents were Native American and 1% Hispanic.

Here's a map showing the largest non-white race in each district via 1974 districts:

And the love for opedo?  Doesn't he still have a positive FF rating, despite all the things that he did?

No.  Not even close:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=185475.0


That's still a disturbing number of FF votes.  Tongue

This is why banning people doesn't make sense.  If you're tired of a bunch of a bunch of posters being HPs (which at this point, is a respectable position), you might as well just leave instead.  

Nearly all the FF votes came out before the rape allegations were big news.

What we should be looking at two years from the election is not the polls but positives/negatives of candidates. Hillary has 40% negatives with 100% name recognition. Negatives stay. People who form a negative opinion about somebody will keep that negative opinion.

That's true.  That's why public figures with high name recognition never see their popularity change much over time.  E.g.:




Why were her approvals so low in 2000?  Do we blame wives for he sex scandals of their husbands now? 

The Lewinsky scandal made her extremely popular (see the peak in 1999), but then that quickly faded, and her 2000 Senate race brought her back down to Earth.

Also, *favorability*, not approval.


Yes, favorability, as in I still have a favorable opinion of President Obama, but I disapprove of him.


Aren't first ladies always supposed to have high favorability ratings, though?  Why would a senate run specifically change that?

Sorry to spam the thread, but I'd like to request that you guys add Washington State to your lists.  It's map is atrocious; it basically strings (gerrymanders) all the towns North of Seattle to make the second district safe for Democrats, and combines the Seattle suburbs with heavily Republican counties in the East (which is bad taste in the first place) to make it non-competitive:




Terrible, terrible map.  
24  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Forum Redistricting Commission on: November 21, 2014, 01:27:06 am
Approve: Indiana, Virginia, Wisconsin, Washington
25  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Forum Redistricting Commission on: November 21, 2014, 01:04:34 am
So we can submit any states we want to change?
