What was the DC result? I'm assuming somewhere in the high 70s to high 80s.

Looks pretty close to what a Republican victory in 2012 would look like. The most glaring exception is Maryland.

You think the white South has been overwhelmingly GOP since Reconstruction? You may want to check up on that.

Maryland, NJ, and New Mexico are the only surprising ones; I'd suspect that the latter would still be D if you counted the white Hispanics who have lived there for centuries.

obviously I'm not a dumbass.  I meant that whites have voted as a bloc in one direction or another.  exception I guess being Carter.

and '56 and '68.
and '48 counting Truman v Thurmond.
all this not counting Virginia, Oklahoma, Florida or Tennessee.

EDIT: or Arkansas or Texas or Clinton  - okay, I'm probably not understanding what you're trying to claim.

Colorado definitely stands out.  I didn't know Obama won the white vote there.

whites with bachelor's degree or higher make up 63% of the voting populating in Colorado so that's why they are more to the left as opposed to other states.

I was under the impression that whites with Bachelor's degrees were pretty reliably Republican (though that could be changing given the GOP's recent stances).

Of course, once you get to higher than Bachelor's degrees, you start seeing a trend towards the Democrats.

HashCAN     americans saw the EP elections and people cringing at Europeans being morons and electing Nazis; so they massively said "NO" and decided to prove that they're still bigger morons

Black wouldn't be all that interesting. A shift from 90 to 95% Dem in the dozen or so states where they have a statistically significant population. Asian would be better.

except that the vast majority of states have so few Asians as to make the whole exercise rather pointless.

Well, it'd still be interesting to see the Asian vote in CA, NY, VA since it's sizable there Smiley

it seems like being close to Canada or being near a major body of water helps the democrats performance among whites, the gulf and southern atlantic coasts and Colorado are the exception however.

I'd like to see this too. What are we using for the data here? CNN's 2008 exit polls? Those don't have the results for the vote distribution of every race in all the states unfortunately.
