If you are going to have a separate Southwest region, it seems weird to not include AZ in it...

Ideologically inconsistent people that make me scratch my head.

This seems like a strange comment from someone with your political views and username...

If I divide the country into West, Midwest, South, and northeast, it would like something like this:



Though I tend to flip-flop on whether Texas is Western or Southern, and Oklahoma doesn't quite fit into any of the regions in my mind...

The plains states plus the Great Lake states. Do some people seriously consider Colorado Midwestern? WTF?

If ME starts voting straight ticket GOP, is it no longer part of New England?  Are Colorado and Wyoming not in the same region?

The South, as a region, doesn't change based on politics.

I'm not sure how much politics is influencing most people decisions here. For example, I don't usually think of DC or Baltimore as southern, and I doubt that left wing voting habits is what makes me tihnk that way.

First of all, some people have specific pet issue that aren't necessarily tied to economics. Second of all, income level isn't necessarily a guarantee about what economic views a person has. There are rich people that support left wing economic policies and, regardless of how stupid or misguided you might think they are for doing so, there are lower income people that support right wing economic policies.

I think I'm probably not moderate enough for this coalition, but I wish you the best of luck. Smiley

Eh, I've changed my mind, this is probably where I belong now. Tongue

2016: Seems like the safest bet to not butterfly things away and ruin everything.
2012: Also pretty safe, along with the added bonus of most likely no Trump 2016.
2004: The most modern one I can do without breaking the one presidency rule, plus then Kerry gets blamed for the rescission, which I'm fine with.

If people actually understood free trade:



Says the guy who supported Trump. Wink

Well, when your opponent is anti-free trade, too, I guess you can vote on other things, huh? Smiley

Eh, I would argue that Hillary flip-flopped so much that she can't really be called consistently anti-free trade, of course Trump has also flip-flopped on most things too so w/e...

So, based on people's comments here, I think I am seeing a few main issues in my guesses

1. I am overestimating the correlation between large/tech cities and support for free trade
2. I am underestimating the support for trade in certain types of rural areas.
3. I probably have too many sates overall as supporting free trade

With those in mind, attempt number three. Tongue





Pretty good map overall, and I believe I forgot to thank you for starting this thread.... Smiley

Well, that thanks would be misplaced, since I didn't start this thread, I just kind of hijacked it. Tongue

Eh, maybe something like this?:



More in favor of free trade/globalization
More opposed to free trade/globalization
This looks more like a map of states you like and states you don't like.

Er, not really? If it was, Alaska and Wyoming would certainly be red, while New Mexico and Louisiana would be green. Tongue

As, for the rest of your post, I would assume that you have more knowledge on the subject of Minnesota than me, so I won't even try to argue with you becasue you are probably right. TBH, I was really just going with the logic that the Midwest seems to usually be the most protectionist part of the country, this whole map was just blind guesses without that much thought put into them.

Makes sense, considering the east/west divide in 1976, and my clearly west coast accent.
