2012


Obama/Biden  375 (43.2%)
Romeny/Ryan   159 (39.1%)
Paul/Schiff    4 (17.2%)
I wish this actually happened, the debates would have been spectacular. Cheesy

Yes, the whole election would have been a lot more interesting and exciting. The foreign policy debate would have been fun to watch.

2016:


Clinton/Warren > Rubio/Jindal

2020:


Clinton/Warren > Pence/Ayotte

2024:


Booker/Sinema > Noem/Haley

2028:


Noem/Schock > Booker/Sinema

2016: Good map, but there's no way that Arkansas goes Democratic before Indiana. Hillary is not Bill. If she won Arkansas, Indiana (and possibly Montana) would come along as well.

2020: If Indiana staying GOP in 2016 was implausible, this map is nearly impossible. There is NO way that a GOP candidate would lose Idaho and win Indiana. Otherwise good.

2024: Most plausible of all your maps.

2028: Plausible (20+ years down the road) except for Michigan, which is trending Democratic.

Can't you people just tell us what the maps are? If you want to play a "guess the candidates" game, that's a great idea, but it should be a separate thread.

It's really tough.  The green bit seems to correspond to the Mississippi River watershed, so maybe something about physical geography, but then you also have light blue DC in the middle of the dark-red Mid-Atlantic, and aaagh.  No idea.

Also odd is that most of the country has what looks like a continuous range of shades, except for the west plus Florida which is just purple.  Which largely corresponds to areas that weren't in the USA in the period betweeen Louisiana Purchase-acquiring Florida, but then Puerto Rico and Hawaii would be purple too.

^maybe the colors correlate with when the states joined the union? DC and Puerto Rico are the only light blue, so I assume that means territory status

You are on something, and by pushing your reasoning a bit you could get very close to the answer. The map isn't geographic per se, but geography plays a great part in explaining it. Similarly, history (and the country's territorial expansion) does matter quite a bit to understand it but doesn't tell the whole story.

All right, here's the big clue.

This map is indeed made with a continuous range of shades (even purple is not fully uniform, look at Wyoming). Basically, these shades indicate chronology. Red is the earliest date, purple is the most recent one, and everything else is in between. Now ponder all this. Wink

Okay, I've got one:



Democrat - 265
Republican - 273

I didn't make this map with any candidates in mind, so hopefully that helps with the guessing game. Smiley

^Nice! I made this while I was watching the West Wing episode "King Corn," so I guess you could say the Republican win on the west coast is inspired by Arnie Vinick. From there I decided to realign, if you will, the rust belt and the south. Zombie Reagan is great, though.

Here is another:

Kia ora bro. Great post. But I'm confused about 2008; does being an incumbent president overrule being runner-up in the primaries in this case? Hillary did better than Edwards that year.
