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?
No. It does have to do with their congressional delegation, though. Or rather, the people in it.

Here's another one, which ought to be quite easy:





(Colors are non-political, possibly)

Any takers?

Red states have two women in their Senate delegation. Green states have one.

This one is quite easy if you know me well. If you had never met me before, it'd be downright impossible.



Hint: Very loosely to one of the maps I already posted here.

Historical demographics.


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

Come on. Someone else take a potshot. I don't want to solve it quite yet. Smiley
Alaska might provide a clue.

I've been trying to work it out, but I just can't.  Ok, is it to do with senators, representatives, both, or neither?

Both. Or perhaps rather "either".

Ok, well 2002 was when Lisa Murkowski took office, and she was the first person to represent Alaska who was actually born there.  So, is it something to do with the year that the first congresscritter took office that was actually born in that state/territory?

Yes. Smiley (Although, technically it's "was elected/appointed" rather than "took office". Otherwise you'd get uneven years instead of most of the even years here.)
Note that I ignored nonvoting delegates.

John Smith, one of the original Senators of your homestate, was born "in the Ohio Country (which may denote riverine W.Va. or southwestern Pa. rather than Ohio... but probably denotes Ohio) or on the Virginia Frontier".

How a particular group voted, according to exit polls?

Yep- those making $15,000 or less, the lowest income bracket. In quite a few states, that was the only bracket Kerry won; but his margins were usually overwhelming.

I don't get Arizona (52-47 Bush) or New Mexico (50-49 Bush), though. Missouri was also surprisingly close (50-49 Kerry).

One of my weirdest and most unplausible timelines:

2008:
Frist (R)
Clinton (D)
Freeman (Populist-invented)



2012 elections soon/

2012

After the 2008 debacle for the conservative Republicans to the centrist Populists, who had already stolen many moderate Republicans and Democrats, the Republicans moved towards the center, and changed its name to the Progressive Republican Party. Vice President McCain joined the PR Party, leaving the Populists.

In 2012, the Progressive Republicans nominate Mike Huckabee of Arkansas. Incumbent President Mike Freeman gains the Populist nomination. The remaining Democrats decided to run a l ticket of Dennis Kucinich. However, mainstream Democrats side with Freeman.

The campaign is mostly played between the center-right Progressive Republicans and the center-left Populists. Freeman gains re-election with 318EV against Huckabee's 205EV and Kucinich's 15EV.



2014 mid-term and 2016 elections next

It was a wild guess based on my very limited knowledge of what I was guessing about and is very likely to be wrong. Tongue

Nope; have a look at the pattern in the West though. Should be a give-away of sorts.
