Is it continuing the trend started between the 1952 and 1956 elections?

Wow, you get a lot of bonus points in my book.  Yeah, I took the 1956 Republican results in a state, and divided it by the 1952 result.  Then, I took the trend number and multiplied it by the 1956 results to get 1960, then again and again and again for each following year.  I only did this with the Republicans.  I just pretended that Democrats and Republicans were the only candidates, so if the Republicans didn't win it, the Democrats would.  That acoc**nts for the distortion in South Carolina and Mississippi (Republicans percent dropped in 1956 because of unpledged electors).

Wow, that really provides some interesting results.

Here's another one using 92 and 96 to make a 2000 map.  Besides North Dakota and Texas, it's not too unrealistic for a landslide election.  Some of actual percentages are out the question though.  (Arizona Gore would have had 59%, 79% in Massachusetts)

Notice how the majority of above average income states are actually Democratic, whereas the vast majority of below average income are staunch Republicans.

I assume it has something to do with counties, no?

Actually no, looking at the data, NH should be red.  Maybe who won the smallest county (in population) of each state?

Nini got it right.

I looked quick at the national county map to determine which way each state went.  I may have gotten NH wrong because it looked pretty even.

Correct.  I messed up Washington in this version, because it voted Republican in 1892.

The Red were the first 13 Colonies.  California and Texas are grey because they were (self-declared, at least) independent nations before they joined or were annexed by the US.

Then Vermont should be grey as well, and the same could be said for Hawaii.

Vermont was part of New York at the signing of the declaration of independence.  I'm not sure how to explain Hawaii, though.

Vermont's status was disputed. It was claimed by NY, NH, and ... Vermont.
