New Mexico and Iowa both went from being Gore states to being Bush states, but solely due to the fact that Bush did better nationally...compared to the national average, they were better for the Democrats than in 2004.  [Gore performed worse than his national average in both states [well, certainly in New Mexico], but Kerry performed better...as Kerry performed worse overall, he still managed to lose both states].

The green states have none of something, the red states have only that thing, and the gray states have some of that thing. The map is apolitical.

This map only looks at Republican and Democrat voters and assumes they make up 100% of all votes cast in their respective states... I'll do it up again when I have time, to reflect independent and minor party voters, but in the meantime, what does this map represent?

Nope... it's what would happen if every member of the voting age population who didn't vote registered and turned out in 2004 to cast a ballot for the same 3rd party candidate.  Red states are states still won by John Kerry despite the 100% turnout and the blue states are states still won by Bush.  People who don't vote could alone elect a President in a landslide.

The really interesting thing is that even though the Wisconsin result was incredibly close, Kerry still would have won - likewise, even though Iowa was close, Bush still would have won - indeed, the strongest wins by the Independent candidate would be in the safest states for either the Democrats or the Republicans. I guess this is a combination of two factors:

i. In states that are "safe" for a particular party, voters may consider their votes worthless, and not bother showing up to vote, since a party will win it anyway.
ii. The GOTV campaigns are strongest in swing states, which reduces the impact of factor i, but also actively gets voters to polling stations.

Even in the states below that would have been won by the independent candidate are the ones which were closest - Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Missouri.

This map you've done is exceptionally interesting - it does a particularly good job of showing states with a higher voter turnout and states with a lower voter turnout. Very interesting! Very good job!

Not political, only one state has changed in the last 10 years I believe, and it changed very recently, NY and CA are tops:

Republican Party: 49%
Democratic Party: 46%
Ind/Minor Parties: 5%

This is the same as the earlier one I posted a few days back, but including the Independent/Minor Party figures. What does it represent?

On a similar theme to my previous 3 maps (here).


1912?

Margin of Victory - Roosevelt vs Wilson, assuming all other votes distributed to Roosevelt? For example, Nevada - Wilson 39.7 vs Roosevelt 27.94+16.47(Debs)+15.89(Taft) = 39.7 vs 60.3. or a little over a 20% margin of victory?

Rough calcs in my head made it look like it would also work for other states, too, but I haven't run the numbers on them.

Xahar: Any clues?
