Counties sized according to voting power, and shaded on a red-to-purple-to-blue scale according to victory margin. False colors, of course.

IrfanView has a filter that lets you swap RGB for any of the other five permutations of the pallette, so RGB -> BGR gave the desired result.

I traced back the source of the wiki map, and came up with this link for you.

Is that deep Red (=Dem) spot southwest of Cook County St Louis? I can't believe it's more democratic than Cook county...

St. Louis City is indeed more Dem than Cook, Mittens only got 15% in St. Louis against 23% in Cook.

I think St. Louis is too big, or St. Louis County was made too strongly Democratic.

I believe you are right.

It actually looks like they treated them as one unit for the map outline... and used the city percentage for the shade.

Not really that surprising, since Cook contains a lot of suburban areas, where St Louis has them in St Louis County, which was only 56% Obama.

I think this map uses red for Republican and blue for Democrat, like most of them do.
