Actually, I made a couple mistakes. Nebraska and Florida should both be blue.
Anybody want to guess?
Okay, since nobody wants to guess, I'll just say what it is. Each state is colored according to the political affiliation of the last incumbent Senator to lose reelection. I think Kansas should also be blue, though.
That's a pretty cool idea.
Some of these are pretty long ago, I suppose?

Interesting. Note that losing the primary counts. In NH, Smith was the last Republican incumbent to lose when he lost the 2002 primary. Durkin, a Democrat, was the last to lose a general election, in 1980.

Alaska is weird. Current Presidential candidate Mike Gravel beat an incumbent Democrat in the 1968 primary, and served 2 terms before he himself lost the primary. Alaska has had 2 Republicans since his term ended in 1981. Who would have thought that both incumbent Alaska Senators defeated would be Democrats who lost in the primary?

Yeah, I had to do a bit of research. Some I was able to get easily (South Dakota) and others I had to look up (Maryland). Louisiana, Mississippi, and Vermont have never had an incumbent be defeated.

Hints: Has to do with the 1992 election. Green indicates a tie.

I think you have Vermont wrong, but is it Perot % + Losing candidates %, or something like that.  That explains the tie in Maryland.  California would be wrong too then, hmm, maybe that's not right actually.

Here is a new one related to Presidential elections:


Most EC Votes, yes this has been done before, I believe.

Yeah, I messed up Vermont and California - but you got it right.

The only hint I'm giving is that they're fairly unrelated. The first 3 are hard, the last one is easy.

Dark and light shades do have something to do with one another.

Oops, I sort of did the map wrong.  It should actually look like this:



With this new completely standardized map, it would be pretty much impossible to have light green or light orange.  Light blue *could* exist, but [hint]probably only for members like Harry and Josh22[/hint].  Oh, and [hint]afleitch too[/hint].

Heck, I could do this map for other places too:

The third one is 1916 with the parties reversed and a slight swing to the Republican.  The fourth one is obviously the 2004 election, but where are Alaska and Hawaii?

For comparision's sake I took out Alaska and Hawaii. Yes, you got the easy one, and 1/3 of the hard ones. I think I may have screwed up DE on one of the other two, BTW.

Howard Dean lost Iowa convincingly in the 2004 primary season and Iowa is in grey, so therefore does it show a connection between Dean's primary vote compared to Kerry's?

No, it has nothing to do with voting percentages. Though you are on to something by saying he lost Iowa.

No; earlier, AlcHitlre said something about it having to do with letters, and I said that was somewhat close to what it is.
