Catholics are from what country?
how much of a overlap is there between Black and Baptists?
how gerrymandered is the state in the house?
voting age population or total?
Hispanics here legally?
size of major cities?

Interesting. I think it'd be R but the evangelical and black population seems rather low.

Tweed, the state that you're describing could only exist in Escape from New York.

Strong D, obviously.

Reminds me of a larger South Carolina, except for the low percentage of blacks. Some kind of cross between South Carolina and Pennsylvania, maybe, although the LDS percentage would probably place it somewhere in the West. Regardless, it's probably consistently and fairly strongly Republican.

Yeah I was thinking of the interior West in general-affluent, educated, white, a high LDS percentage, and lots of defense and military jobs.

They tend to have a pretty high correlation, which makes the exercise less interesting.

Ahah, pacific island voting patterns are very interesting. Hawaii is actually an abberation among the Pacific Islands for not being very religious (due to many many more larger Japanese/Chinese).

The Pacific Islands are some of the most religious places on Earth. For example, the Northern Marianna Islands has no Democrats in its lower house and one Democrat in its upper house.

Incidentally, koenkai, your name for your state is rather whimsical. I like it. Am I correct in assuming that this 'Hourai' is 蓬莱?
