Um...Well Nixon carried all the yellow states in 1968, and he carried all of the blue states too (except Connecticut). Humphrey carried all of the red states, while Wallace carried all the green states and the dark red states. Is this it? Wink

I screwed up on Connecticut Sad
But otherwise that's correct.
The states in red are states that both Truman and Humphrey won (thus red for Democratic).
The states in blue (except Connecticut Grin) are states that both Dewey '48 and Nixon won (thus blue for Republican)
The states in yellow are states that Truman and Nixon won.
The states in orange are states that Dewey '48 and Humphrey won (and the color Connecticut should be)
The states in green are states that both Thurmond and Wallace won.
The states in dark red are states that Truman won in '48 and Wallace won in '68
South Carolina went for Thurmond in '48 and then went to Nixon in '68 (by a small margin)
The blank states are states that weren't states in 1948

Bush carried all the green and blue states in 2000. Charles Evans Hughes carried all the yellow and blue states in 1916. Wilson carried all the green and red states in 1916. Gray states weren't states in 1916.

Oddly enough this might be true.
You won't believe how lax the alcohol laws are in a lot of places in Texas.  Hell, I even think in some places it's legal for minors to consume alcohol as long as there is an adult around.
Not to mention the social permissiveness that exists in Texas cities like Houston and Austin.
Oklahoma and Kansas though.....really?

It must be those goddamn state governments, regulating our lives.......
It must be some really key things these people were looking at because if you notice hippie haven Colorado is also dark green.
Now notice it says Personal and Economic Freedoms, so that might explain kind of why the "blue states" are sky green.  Plus, I hear things like gun laws suck mightily in places like Maryland and New York.
However, I think these people really need to visit Oklahoma.......I mean really.  Most states level of social authoritarianism is overblown (like Texas), but I can say without bias that Oklahoma truly does blow.

Sure, if you focus on gun laws and consider government regulations as a horrible infringement to "economic freedom", the map can make sense. Still, it just shows how ridiculously biased the authors of this index are.

As I supposed, the criteria of this index utterly suck. Half of them don't even have anything to do with freedom...

They suck in Mass too.

Also, MA shouldn't be Sky Green, it should be White.

Does it have to do with the 1976 election? Possibly the map before election day if the race was a toss-up?

They all went for Bush in 2004, so I guess something to do with that. Iowa and New Mexico didn't go for Bush in 2000, and they're shaded a lighter colour...
