I'm not sure if the map is actually based on something, but here's my take on a possible race:

Romney/Frist (R)
Vilsack/Bill Nelson (D)
Easley/Lieberman (I)

Actually it's part of a weird TL i'm starting where Bush invades Iran and Iraq at the same time and people get pissed of war, the Dems can't rally opposition, so a third party (Populists) run and win in 2008.

Something with the trend since 1964?

Historical demographics.


Number of different largest urban places a state has had. (States' modern boundaries. Some states had no urban places in their early statehood, not to mention across much of their territorial period.)

ME - only Portland
NH - Portsmouth, Manchester
VT - only Burlington
MA - only Boston
RI - Newport, Providence
CT - New Haven, New London, Hartford, Bridgeport
NY - only New York
NJ - Trenton, Newark
PA - Philadelphia
OH - Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus
IN - New Albany, Indianapolis
IL - only Chicago
MI - only Detroit
WI - only Milwaukee
MN - Saint Paul, Minneapolis
IA - Burlington, Dubuque, Davenport, Des Moines
MO - Saint Louis, Kansas City
ND - only Fargo
SD - only Sioux Falls
NE - only Omaha
KS - Leavenworth, Kansas City, Wichita
DE - only Wilmington
MD - only Baltimore
DC - only Washington (using DC's then boundaries though, Alexandria once was it's largest place!)
VA - Norfolk, Raleigh, Virginia Beach
WV - Wheeling, Huntingdon, Charleston
NC - New Bern, Wilmington, Winston-Salem, Charlotte
SC - Charleston, Columbia
GA - Savannah, Atlanta
FL - Pensacola, Key West, Jacksonville, Miami
KY - Louisville, Lexington
TN - Nashville, Memphis
AL - Mobile, Birmingham
MS - Natchez, Vicksburg, Meridian, Jackson
AR - only Little Rock
LA - only New Orleans
OK - Guthrie, Oklahoma City
TX - Galveston, San Antonio, Dallas, Houston
MT - Helena, Butte, Great Falls, Billings

AZ - Tucson, Phoenix
UT - only Salt Lake City
NV - Virginia City, Reno, Las Vegas

Just noticed that NE and ME show up wrong; something to do with those CDs I suppose.

Meanwhile, here's a relatively easy puzzle, which I think has been done before:

Perot 92: Can anyone guess what would've had to happen in order for Perot to win the 92 election
(besides staying in the race)?

This Congress compared to 93-4 Congress. Red = more Democratic, Blue = more Republican, Green = no change (Sanders counted as Democrat)

Judging by the South and South Dakota, I'm going to guess it's some sort of altered 1972 map.

You're half-way there. Smiley

Look at the margin in Mississippi, particularly, if it helps.

Are Missouri and Illinois flipped?  Because if the percentages are backwards, then I'd say it's like an 8% swing to McGovern in 1972 or something like that.

No, but you're warmer.  Don't just restrict yourself to 1972, though. Wink

Is it some sort of combination of 1964 and 1972 percentages?  That would explain the Missouri-Illinois disparity and the large percentages in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

There ya go. Cheesy  I took McGovern's and Goldwater's percentages in each state and expanded them so they were one-on-one.

Incidentally, it's fairly interesting to note that their shares of the vote in Illinois were almost identical.

This one has probably been done before.. but take a crack at it.



Hint:  Think back as far as 10 presidential elections ago.

# of times in the last 10 elections that each state has voted for each party (e.g., 90% = 9 times)?

Historical demographics.


Ohio's 1803 may be wrong, in which case the answer for Ohio is 1832.

I would say that year that each became a state, but that only applies to a few of them.  The year that each got more than three electoral votes?
