Great stuff.

here's what the 1996 CD map would've looked like then:



apologies for the poor quality and all that.

Why is that one district between Brownsville and Corpus Christi, TX, a lighter color than all the other Democrat-won districts?

Just forgot to put that cd in a normal shade. I used the site's 2000 base maps and did away with the shades.

According to Polidata, Clinton won it by 1.7% and Gore by 2.7%.

Clinton also won TN-4, TN-6, WA-5, and may have won VA-4 and TX-5.

He picked up AZ-6, CA-27, CA-46, FL-16, LA-5, LA-6 (depending on the lines), MI-6, MI-7, MI-10, NH-1, NJ-12, NY-1, NY-2, NY-13, NY-22, NY-23, NY-27, NY-31, OH-6, OH-16, PA-7, PA-10, VA-11, WI-6, and WI-8 (I might be forgetting one or two) from 1992, while dropping AR-3, CA-22, CA-44, CO-3, IL-18, KS-3, MT-1, NC-11, TN-3, and TX-1.

What was the margin in Salt Lake City's congressional district?  It must have been pretty close in 1996.

I don't think so.  It may have been 48 Dole-40 Clinton; definitely not within 5 points.  The PVI (92, 96) for the SLC district is R+8.0.

Strange, because he only lost Salt Lake County by 4%.  Maybe the city belonged to more than 1 congressional district?

There were soem pretty heavily Dem areas of Salt Lake County in the 1st and 3rd.  I remember Jim Hansen losing the part of SL County in 2000, even as he was winning 69-27.
