Can we have another hint?

A wild guess though: Like, for example since California is dark blue, a heavy majority of their Governors have been Republican. In Idaho, a slight majority has been Democrat, making it a pink color. Am I even close?

That sounds good, but Georgia has only had three Republican Governors! Smiley
Yeah, right after I posted, I remembered that Perdue was the first GOP Governor since the Civil War. Wink

Could it be what was suggested above, but with Senators, not Governors?

Nope. Georgia has only had four Republican Senators. Smiley

Unfortunately you didn't get it. Wink It represents neither Governors or Senators, but instead Representatives. Also, colors don't represent political parties.

Hint #3 : The year of this map is 2003.

I'll give a last hint if you still don't get it, but I think you're able to find it now. Wink

Authorization of the War in Iraq?

Nope, you still don't get it. Wink

Ok, I guess I'll make it easier.
Blue States can be considered as "lucky", red States as "unlucky". The darker a State is, the more lucky/unlucky it is. Have a look to North Carolina and Utah in particular : at the time, they were particularly famous for being respectively the luckiest and the unluckiest.

Simple appeal to moderate Midwestern voters. VA, OH and NC goes to Obama due to heavy black turnout.

Nobody else is responding, so I'll say:
Red: States with teams in the College Football top 25
Blue: States without teams in the top 25
Red has 270, blue has 268.

That's my scenario having of 2012 not 2008. Obama won those republican states not because his electoral strength, but in part due to the centrist dems winning those elections in those key battleground states,  not having a centrist VP

Any rate there is going to be a realignment in which alot the state he won will have more GOP senators so I think if Obama wins in 2012 it will be lesser to an extent.
