Kalwejt - I'd be interested in seeing a map of which counties have never voted for one major party for President from 1960-2008 (i.e. all Democrat, all GOP, all Dem or 3rd party, all GOP or 3rd party, etc.)

Thanks for the 88 map. Is it possible for a 2000 map? I'm wondering how Buchanan stacked up against Nader & where he got 3rd.

Green: Ralph Nader (Green)
Blue: Pau Buchanan (Reform)
Yellow: Harry Browne (Libertarian)

And, obligatory, with eliminating major party candidates...

Nader: 500 EVs
Browne: 27 EVs
Buchanan: 11 EVs

Nader wasn't on the ballot in either state where Buchanan won. Buchanan's best state was ND.

Cool. Thanks.

It appears the only counties to go for a Senate GOP in 2008 and a Senate Dem in 2010 are:

Oregon Coos, Jackson, Wasco, Gilliam, Tillamook, Yamhill, Polk, Marion, Clackamas
Alabama Marengo
Georgia - Rockdale (Dem in general 2008, GOP in run-off 2008, Dem in 2010)
Kentucky Robertson (GOP to tie)

Sadly, most of these have more to do with incumbency (Oregon), black turnout (Alabama and Georgia), and a statistical fluke (Kentucky), than with any leftward shift.

Does anyone else think there is anything else at work with the above counties? Perhaps Marengo, AL had whites go back Dem after Obama was off the ticket, since black turnout was already maxed in 2008.

Comparing Governors races from 2006 to 2010, the only counties that voted GOP in 2006 and Dem in 2010 are:

Hawaii: all
Colorado: Crowley and Jackson (both were barely Dem due to Republican split in 2010)
South Dakota: Ziebach, Dewey, Corson, Day, Roberts
Texas: Harris, Culberson, Bexar, Trinity, Kleberg, Cameron, Falls (Ind. to Dem), (Dallas is incorrect)
Arkansas: Saline, Lonoke, Polk, Sebastian, Crawford, Pope, Madison, Newton, Searcy, Benton, Carroll, Boone, Marion, Baxter
Minnesota: Nicollet, Clay
Maryland: Baltimore County
Alabama:  Butler, Montgomery, Henry, Jefferson, Chambers
Florida: Franklin, Liberty, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Orange, Osceola, St. Lucie
Georgia: Bibb, Brooks, Burke, Chatham, Early, Jefferson, McIntosh, Muscogee, Peach, Rockdale, Sumter, Warren, Washington
South Carolina: Colleton, Charleston, Kershaw, Darlington, Florence
Connecticut: Hartford, New Haven
Rhode Island: Washington (Rep. to Ind.), Bristol (Rep. to Ind.)
Vermont: Bennington, Addison, Chittenden, Windsor, Washington, Orange

Most of these counties in in states where the candidate or incumbency changed (HI, AR, VT, RI, FL, etc.), does anyone think any of the others could be trending left?

You see, you're doing a great map with shades. I'm sticking with simplier ones.

PiS: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_and_Justice
PO: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civic_Platform

They both look pretty much like the US Republican Party to me, but then again I'm not Polish.

PiS is like the ugliest parts of the Democratic coalition of the past, and PO is like the ugliest parts of the Democratic coalition of the present. Tongue (Uglyness defined from a leftwing perspective, of course.)

Especially 40th district.

Doing map for 2001 is pointless, since SLD won in every single district.

It's hard to get online data for 1997, 1993 and 1991 (1991 would be the best: there were 29 parties in Sejm).

So what types of issues would PO and PiS disagree on?

Anything that has to do w/ religion and foreign policy, for instance.

None of major Polish parties (ones with parliamentary seats) would fit comparison to the Republican Party. First of all, none of these parties can be really described as economically conservative. PO have economically conservative roots (or, as we call it, liberal), but disavowed neoliberalism a long time ago and, ironically, PiS, while in power, conducted much more conservative policy, despite their "solidary state" BS.

So, following Lewis' comparison:

PiS: Social/ideological nuts, while largely progressive on economy, much like old Dixiecrats
PO: Current Democratic "moderate heroes"/DLC fellows
SLD: Liberal Democrating wing
PSL: Rural Blue Dogs
