This is a totally useless excercise that popped into my head after I did a '72 map with a 10% national swing to McGovern.

2004, 10% to Kerry:



428-110

2004, 10% to Bush:



523-15

2000, 10% to Gore:



509-29

2000, 10% to Bush:



498-40

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Nor would a 10% swing in WA make it >60 Bush.  I assume you're just adding 10 percentage points to their vote share, right?  That's actually a 20% swing.

I was working pretty fast, and made a mistake.

Just for the fun of it, summer 2014 reading: I am taking college courses both in July & did in May. I have read all of the material for those. Besides that I read Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story & the book on Kennedy & Nixon by Chris Matthews both cover to cover & before that One Last Kiss: The Chris Coleman Story. All very informative & entertaining books. I have started Rendevouz With Destiny By Craig Shirley.

10% to Carter 1980 (-3.5 Reagan, -1,5 Anderson, +5 Carter)



Carter: 283
Reagan: 255


If you leave out Anderson and make it a straight swing against Reagan of 10, Carter gains Connecticut and Oregon.


10% to McGovern



Nixon: 492
McGovern: 46

Nixon: 256
Humphrey: 191
