On the 1956 map, it shows Eisenhower as having more than 60% of the vote in Colorado.



However, Eisenhower only got 59.49% of the vote there.

That's... That's... Unbelievable! I can't believe such a well reputationed forum as this would have been party to such a grievous error! I'd been considering leaving the forum but decided not to. This, however, is the last straw! Angry

Don't be a douche. It's important to have accurate figures and maps for an election atlas.

It's not something I'm particularly peeved about, just something I'd like to bring to Dave's attention. I have no reason to believe it was anything other than a sincere mistake.

Oh, it's just "coincidence" is it? May I suggest you study the county map for the Texas senatorial election of 1964 and think again. T H E T R U T H

Look for it.

Thanks for pointing out this error.  The maps have been corrected and will now show properly (even in this thread) with a reload.

Please let me know if you find any others.
Enjoy,

     North Dakota in 1900 is also erroneous. It is colored R>60%, though McKinley received 55.25% there.

Indiana in 1832 should be 60% shade.

Bump.

Scott County, Indiana, in the 2008 election is painted as >50% McCain despite only being 49.75% McCain.

Grant County, North Dakota, is listed as 64% McCain, but is painted as >40% McCain.

And by the way, IL and DE are marked as >50% in the 2008 EV map, whereas Obama broke 60% there.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Oh, and it looks to me like SC is shaded as >50% Gingrich rather than >40% Gingrich.

I reran the map-creation scripts for 2008 - so these are all representative of the current database.

Humpty Bumpty.

For the 2004 map, Washington is shaded at >50% despite only being 48.41% Kerry. Additionally, Idaho is shaded >50% Kerry despite being >80% Kerry.

Idaho is shaded 50% Kerry as that's what the results of the caucus were. As for Washington...I think it's a mistake.
