I'd be interested in seeing the 1990's version of WI-4 (actually voted Bush in 2000). I imagine that the 1990's TX-10, UT-2, and MD-2 went for Obama.

Im pretty sure the 1990's version of MD-02 went narrowly for McCain.  It included the most Republican parts of Baltimore county and Harford county went 58%-39% for McCain.  I think I figured out that it went 50%-48% for McCain.
