Electoral College Calculator Addition

The Atlas Electoral College Calculator has been a very popular feature on the site. One of the alternate uses of the tool has been to create maps for discussion on the forum (such as what-if scenarios, predictions, etc.). A common feature request for the calculator is to show popular vote percentages of the winning candidate as different shades of red and blue (and green) in the same manner as presented with the Atlas results maps. This functionality has now been added to the calculator. The user has an option to turn the feature on or off in the Map Options box (in the off-state, the map generator simply ignores the percentages shown in the boxes). The name has also been changed from the Electoral College Calculator to the Electoral College Calculator and Map Generator.
