I'm thinking about trying to do a national (or as close to it as possible) precinct map for the 2012 primaries and maybe hosting it somewhere. It would be a lot of work though, so I don't know. What do you guys think?

I honestly do not think that the aesthetics of the project would justify the colossal amount of work that you would need to do to accomplish that feat. I think if you zoomed all the way out on that map, as is the case with your Iowa map, you would see something that looks a bit like TV static. And in any case, how will you get precinct data for a place like Massachusetts?

But if you were to do the 2008 primary, that would be fascinating. I can help with New England and New York... Wink

For New England, I would probably mostly use town data, though the bigger cities like Boston usually have precinct data available.

I actually have a fair number of states done from the 2008 D primaries: CA, NV caucus, MN caucus, WA primary, ID primary, plus parts of TX, UT, FL, IL, PA and New England/NY by town. If I have time, I could probably do MT. The main problem is having to pay the smaller counties and states for paper documents and the work it takes to apply that.

Here's a nice little map I made for the 2008 precinct data:


Green are states I've either finished at the precinct level (darkest) or have maps for parts of but probably can't finish (lightest). Red are caucus states I can't get data for. Blue are states I have/know where to find precinct data for but have not done anything with yet.

Here's a fun map. This is the 2012 primaries if the non-Paul anti-Romney vote were consolidated behind one candidate.



For those who don't know, the actual county map for 2012 is in the OP.

Well, you beat me to posting my own maps by about two hours.  Never mind, I only spent a whole week on them. Sad

Ah well, here's a closer-up of the Las Vegas metro area:
(click for bigger version)





And an unshaded version that's a little easier on the eyes:




Hopefully it won't take a genius to figure out where the wealthy gated communities of suburbia are located.  Hint: they're dark green.

The north-south strip of Paul territory in the center of the city is indeed The Strip, which makes me smile.  Alas, I wouldn't read too much into that though, as it's (obviously) not a residential area, and thus there were half a dozen total votes in each of those precincts.

The wild variance you see in some parts of town is simply due to them having low Republican populations.  The bloc of empty precincts in the northern side of town is predominantly black, and the empty bloc on the southern end of the Strip is the airport and some undeveloped light industrial areas.

Essentially, Romney won pretty much every precinct that had a high turnout/GOP population.  I was surprised by this too.

And lastly, despite winning only 69 votes statewide in total, two precincts in the city actually managed to see a majority of votes for 'None'.  They each had about a dozen voters, so there must have been some type of co-ordinated effort, or perhaps just a thoroughly uninspired group of voters who still managed to turn out anyway.

Is that all there was from Aroostook? Really?

Anybody care to explain the towns Santorum won or at least Somerset County, which he won?

Most of Aroostook was in one countywide caucus. A few straglers held their own caucuses.

The regional patterns developing are so nice. VA is the only ugly part that won't match thus far. Though IA of course has lighter shades, too, but I think we're used to that happening. Tongue

If it's not too much work, could you make a 2012 Democratic map?

Update reading list

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

I've been sort of working on it, but it wasn't very interesting until Oklahoma.
