As I think everyone is beginning to realise, 2010 will see the first UK / US double header since 1992 (when a UK election and a US election are held in the same year) and as such it will not be long before we Brits have these devices coming out of our ears



I would like to know if there is anyone who is slightly more expert at online graphics who could create a similar graphic for the US elections if I was to supply them with a spreadsheet ranking the 2008 results by swing needed to gain?

It's not really possible, because neither party contests every seat.

Swingometer.

So, basically, yes.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Which would simply mean that on the 50% side for the Dem would be those 14 and on the 50% side for the GOP would be those 42.

If this refers to the 2010 elections then IL-17 is being contested. OTOH IL-1 and IL-4 are not being contested by any Rep.

I'm preparing for my next road trip to the Pac NW. Here are my previous editions from 2011,
2008, and 2005. That should help fill a bunch of counties on my master map.
