Perhaps how many neighbouring states are partially within that enclosing rectangle?

I'm tired of responding to guesses, so...

It's the number of extreme points of the state (out of north, south, east, west) that are lines rather than points, from gray=0 to darkest green=4.  The Oregon-California and Virginia-North Carolina borders are almost straight east-west, but slightly screwy; they ended up counting for Oregon (because of the straighter Nevada bit) and Virginia  (because it is straight in the east, but bends slightly north in the west) but not California or North Carolina.  In the case of Oregon-California, the surveyor was apparently a fairly heavy drinker.

Blue states = government sanctioned racism
Red states = non-government sanctioned overt racism
Grey states = even worse, closet racist states

Isn't the Montana-Wyoming border a bit messed up in Yellowstone?  (although, if it's messed up in Montana's favor, that may not make a difference for your purposes).

No, it wasn't the SEC it was the Southern Conference.

Hm, you're right.  So Colorado is the only actually rectangular state.  But it is in Montana's favor.

 Thanks for the welcome. It is what would have to happen in the election for that result to happen?
