A non-political map.  Have fun.

Edit: apparently the blue stuff has been done before, and New York could be dark as well as light blue.  Vermont could be pink in a stretch.

It's fairly easy, but see if you can figure it out.

Bush's current approval ratings?

Nope, think historical (but not too historical).

the blue states are those that haven't voted Democrat in the Presidential election since 1960.

No, that's not it.  All of those blue states have voted Democratic at least once since then.

largest vote total in an elction since 1960?

Nobody has gotten it yet.  Here's a hint: It's based on a single election.

1992 without Perot?

Nope, but getting closer.  This is based on actual data.

I give up, tell us!!

Yeah, sorry about that.  I spent two weeks without touching a computer because I was too busy, and then I was too ashamed to come back :/

Couldn't find anyone who answered this, so I will.  It's the phonetic characteristics of the first consonant sound in the name.  Green is nasal, yellow is fricative, and so on.  Dark means voiced, light means unvoiced.  As a speaker of American English, I demand a separate color for Idaho and Italy, where the first consonant is a flap.

Correct Grin  (and as a speaker of American English, I am ashamed that I did not use a separate color for our beloved flap Wink)

Blue States are those giving Dole >48% of the vote.

Here's an odd map to attempt to figure out!


I'll even give a hint; it uses data from elections since 1960.

Umm, that may be true, but it's not what I was going for.  Here's what it is:

Red: Clinton + Perot + Nader
Blue: Dole

hint: nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans

I'll take a guess that I know is wrong and say the Blue states have English only as the "Official" Language.
New Mexico uses English & Spanish; Hawai'i uses English & Hawai'in; but Louisiana uses French & English, so either I'm wrong or the map is.

nope

John McCain wins the Republican nomination, but George W. runs anyway as an independent.
