First off, awesome site!

Second, I'm a little unclear about the meaning of the columns D, R and I when I view the data by state. I mean, I know what they stand for, but does that mean the EC votes were split, or what?

Third, regarding Maine and Nebraska, whose EC votes can be split, have they ever done so? Reviewing your data seems to suggest not.

Last, I ask all this because I'm working on a contest to predict the results of the 2004 EC. There's still a lot of work to be done, but if anyone wants to drop by and visit or offer suggestions, and doesn't mind the digital sawdust on the floor, visit http://www.maybeithinktoomuch.com/election/

NE and ME has never split their EVs no. And it's very, very rare for states to plit EVs, so even I don't know exactly what you're talking about with state level data, I'd say no.

Keep in mind that we're still writing the code for this and the database will be cleared before voting officially begins.

However, if you have any problems or suggestions, please let me know.
