NY-24 has a Democratic representative.

But McCain didn't win the district.  Hence the light blue color.

Ah. I see what you mean. Sorry for the confusion.

F'xed map:



Interesting map : more democrats in the south and west, more republicans in the northern midwest and northeast. However, southern congressional democrats should be more conservatives than their party and northern republicans more progressives.

These are awesome, thanks! Any chance we could get a map of how CD's swung from '04 to '08? Smiley

Royer: I'm not 100% sure on what you mean by "notional" in this context, but to confirm, the numbers on the chart for the 2000 election reflect the district boundaries that came into being after states created new maps after the 2000 census. This can be confirmed by the fact that brand new districts like NC-13 are shown with numbers. (If we were using pre-2002 district lines, NC-13 would be empty because it simply didn't exist.)

The same is also true for GA and TX, the two states which did mid-decade redistricting.

Nym: I emailed Dave a link to this data. He is more than welcome to use it on the site!

So are they the 2000 GA and TX results those for the current districts, or for the post-2002 districts? That was his question - your wording wasn't clear. Though the TX results make it obvious that it's the former, really. (By notional, he means that the districts didn't actually exist at the time of the election. The term is somewhat out of place here as these districts aren't used for presidential elections anyways.)

Anyways, this maps shows States fro which 2008 CD maps are available (yellow States have only one seat).



So, once we get NJ, MD, GA, FL, TN, TX, OH, IL, MO, OK, CO and OR maps, we'll also finally have the nationwide one.

Considering that the final 2004 national CD map was never finished on this site, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for 2008.

Sure that, since I'm the only one who seems to care, I doubt Leip will have the impression the forum absolutely wants a complete CD map.

Actually, precise data insterests me mor than the map (indeed yes, we already have yours on this thread and I can't stop watching them), since I'd like to know I which districts Obama did better than nation (or state) wide and in which he did worse, in order to precisely measure gerrymandering.

SSP should still have all the actual numbers up on their websites. If not, I could find them somewhere.

FYI, I am working on this some more - I've completed OR & TN, close in FL, IL,  NJ, and OH.  GA is tabulated, but is kind of ridiculous - over 1million votes not allocated.  Haven't started CO, TX, OK.
(Note I've tabulated these completely independent of SSP - I don't allocate the split votes).

Pretty ridiculous how "packed" Democrats are. Obama had 26 districts where he won at least 80% of the vote. McCain had 0.

Some of these are some of the most "natural", reasonable districts in the US. Not all, of course.
