In 2008 the third party percentage was 1.5%
In 2004 it was 1.0%
Kinda cool how even it was.
This map is for trend otherwise almost every state would have more of a third party vote in 2008.
Red is the states that voted more for a third party/other in 2008 more-so than they did in 2004 by trend
Dark red is a significant increase in third party/other vote from 2004 to 2008 (Like 1% more or close to it)
Green is no real change
Blue is trending against voting for a third party
Dark Blue is where the third party was actually more in 2004 than in 2008. These states were DC, Vermont, New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Oklahoma is grey because it is too lame to have other parties on the ballot. Although even if it did I would probably still leave it grey because that state sucks
Not really too surprising I guess. I don't even know why I made this. I guess I was bored. I was surprised at Ohio though. In 2004, only having .48% for third party/other is understandable since it was THE state. But why a huge leap to 1.79% in 2008? Not feel important enough?
