One last bump, if anyone wants to take a guess.

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...
West Virginia...?

You're on the right track. Smiley

No, but it does deal with two close elections...

Bump. It shouldn't be too hard.
Does it have to do with the 1976 election? Possibly the map before election day if the race was a toss-up?

No, but it deals with 2 close elections.

You're on the right track. Smiley

I'd been going to suggest that it was sort of the Republican "winning streak" - how many elections in a row it had been won by the Republican candidate - ie. in 2004 IA and NM were just once, WV was twice... except it can't be that because there were other states that should have been just twice, and others that should have been shaded darker.

Basically... no Republican since 04 has won the general without Iowa/New Mexico.

No Republican since 2000 has won the general without WV.

etc.

As for the darkest states, no Republican since 1952 (and beyond in some cases) has won without them.

Ford carried all of the Green States and the Blue States. Nixon carried all the Blue States and the Red States in 1968. Neither Ford or Nixon carried any of the states in grey.

Well, MS/AL stick out for some reason.

Do MS/AL have something to do with 1968, and NH something to do with 2000?

You're correct with 2000, but not 1968. You're on the right track though.

The red and green ones all went for Gore in 2000 (or were lost by Bush in 2000, depending on how you want to look at it), so that's a starting point.

THat is correct, and indeed, that is the starting point to figuring out what my map means.

Here is a quite simple one, but which strangely I've never seen before. If you don't manage to find it, I'll give some hints. Wink

I would have guessed something along the lines of "% of the population identifying as mormon" (Utah's strongest, lesser in the states above Utah, weakest in the strong baptist areas of the south), except that Oklahoma is unshaded. This suggests to me that it's some sort of third party results map.

This.

30% shade is less than 1%
40% is between 1 and 1.5%
50% is between 1.5 and 2%
60% is between 2 and 2.5%
Etc...
