Is it political? It looks more like a over/under average map...

On a similar theme to my previous 3 maps (here).

The green states have none of something, the red states have only that thing, and the gray states have some of that thing. The map is apolitical.

This map only looks at Republican and Democrat voters and assumes they make up 100% of all votes cast in their respective states... I'll do it up again when I have time, to reflect independent and minor party voters, but in the meantime, what does this map represent?

Nope... it's what would happen if every member of the voting age population who didn't vote registered and turned out in 2004 to cast a ballot for the same 3rd party candidate.  Red states are states still won by John Kerry despite the 100% turnout and the blue states are states still won by Bush.  People who don't vote could alone elect a President in a landslide.

The really interesting thing is that even though the Wisconsin result was incredibly close, Kerry still would have won - likewise, even though Iowa was close, Bush still would have won - indeed, the strongest wins by the Independent candidate would be in the safest states for either the Democrats or the Republicans. I guess this is a combination of two factors:

i. In states that are "safe" for a particular party, voters may consider their votes worthless, and not bother showing up to vote, since a party will win it anyway.
ii. The GOTV campaigns are strongest in swing states, which reduces the impact of factor i, but also actively gets voters to polling stations.

Even in the states below that would have been won by the independent candidate are the ones which were closest - Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado and Missouri.

This map you've done is exceptionally interesting - it does a particularly good job of showing states with a higher voter turnout and states with a lower voter turnout. Very interesting! Very good job!

Not political, only one state has changed in the last 10 years I believe, and it changed very recently, NY and CA are tops:

Republican Party: 49%
Democratic Party: 46%
Ind/Minor Parties: 5%

This is the same as the earlier one I posted a few days back, but including the Independent/Minor Party figures. What does it represent?

1912?

Margin of Victory - Roosevelt vs Wilson, assuming all other votes distributed to Roosevelt? For example, Nevada - Wilson 39.7 vs Roosevelt 27.94+16.47(Debs)+15.89(Taft) = 39.7 vs 60.3. or a little over a 20% margin of victory?

Rough calcs in my head made it look like it would also work for other states, too, but I haven't run the numbers on them.

Xahar: Any clues?

Intrinsic characteristics of Utah, Colorado and Wyoming all suggest mountains or mormons to me...

Wyoming never used to suggest mountains to me until I saw David Attenborough's Life of Mammals in which he showed a colony of beavers in Wyoming and it was very beautiful there. Until a few nights back when I saw it, I always thought of Wyoming as something like Kansas - flat with wheat farms, so I probably don't have the best idea of the intrinsic characteristics of those states. (Sorry all Wyoming inhabitants out there).

The only part of Wyoming I've ever seen featured huge mountains (Yellowstone and Grand Teton NPs).

It is geographic, but not physical geography.

Xahar - is it something to do with water? Maybe something like the red states only have rivers that originate in the same state, the grey states have rivers that originate in the same state but also rivers that originate in another state, and green states only have rivers that originate outside the state?

Good idea, but it has to do with the state itself, not anything inside the state.
