Given the reactions of some of the more Trumpian conservatives, I'm thinking the party labels may make more sense swapped.

Who says that the Trumpists should be in charge? Tongue

What year would this be in? It seems a lot like a future scenario.

Roughly 2040

Only thing I really disagree with is that UT is solid red and ID/WY are swing states. Unless the Republicans go through some seismic shift and become liberal, those states are the deepest ruby red.

Wyoming is such a tiny state that I could see it shifting just enough to put it into swing territory by 2040 just from migration and growth. Colorado 2008 basically.

I decided to put mormons in the Democratic column and I think that the ones in Boise, Idaho will have a strong enough presence combined with the state growing in size or shifting to become like 2008 Colorado. Why are the mormons Democrat? I figure since they're a small religious minority who dislike Trump that they'd overtime shift to the Democrats. The two big issues they opposed Trump on were the Muslim ban and his tough stance on illegal immigration. These are two issues that I don't really see the GOP softening on anytime soon. I think the GOP will neglect this group in the long run and since the mormons are disproportionately younger and their youth drastically outnumber their elderly then mormons as a whole will be pushed into the Democratic column by 2040.

Interesting. What cause the Pacific Coast and the Northeast to become so Republican?

This would be cool as an alternate states project on one of the other broads, but for Atlasia it seems like a  lot of work and complication for little benefit.

Harvard awarded George H.W. Bush, a Republican President, an honorary degree this year.

It's an absolute travesty that liberal universities aren't inviting Joe the Plumber, the Duck Dynasty guy, or Donald Trump to address them for equal time.

Thanks for clarifying the parties views on trade and foreign policy. Now I can be even more strongly supportive of the Republicans. Tongue

So basically the 1896 election coalition

I was unaware of gay marriage and marijuana legalization being major issues in 1896. Wink

Name it after this loser.

Excuse me? From the day I was born, I was destined for success. I was brought into this world by a software engineer and a prominent actuary, both of British decent. From the moment that the curtains were raised, I was set to dominate the STEM fields. And because I had guardians that actually cared about me, I flourished. Pretty soon, I was placed into a special school of correspondence, specifically the school for gifted children in Santa Barbara. I not only reached my parent's expectations, but I passed the with flying colors. I had raw talent. I was better. I was surrounded by 6th graders, many from Hong Kong, whom were smarter than half the posters in this website. And now where am I? At Caltech, getting my double BS in Electrical Engineering and Physics, with a Stanford-Binet tested IQ of 147 at age 17.

Get this through your head: I am worth more than your entire goddamn family. I'm smarter than you, better looking than you, taller than you, wealthier than you, and more employable than you. While you type out another comment, I'll be simultaneously working with the brightest minds in the world and fornicating with my beautiful girlfriend. It gets on my nerves when people pretend to be better than me. Know your place. Never, ever use me in your posts again.
