Answer:  The affiliation of each state's first governor (n.b. not territorial or colonial governor).  I used green for any party that was not the Democratic or Republican party.

Here are two maps that are similar yet completely opposite in how they were derived.

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.

Hint: It has to do with a speech he made.

Bingo. Iowa is grey because he was in Iowa when he gave the speech, and mentioned it, but wasn't going there.

A few of the shadings for Gore are wrong on your map.  Maine at large and ME-02 would have been Gore >50%, like ME-01, rather than Gore >40%.  Florida and Oregon would have been Gore >50% as well.  Gore actually received a majority of the non-Nader vote in Maine overall and both of its congressional districts.  All the other shadings seem correct.

Here's your map with the shadings corrected.

I did this one earlier, but the new Senate changes the map. It is the last incumbent defeated in each state.
