I had this great idea, but Ben ruined it. Oh well. Here it is:



West Virginia is nonexistant due to a deficiency in the evcalc.

What great idea was that?

That's for me to know and you to find out.

The color represents the affiliation of each state's senior senator, and the shade determines the age difference between them and the junior senator.  (Darker = less difference)

Close, but you're thinking too hard.

West Virginia is nonexistant due to a deficiency in the evcalc.

Is it the combined margin for both Senators? For example, if one Senator was a Republican elected by 3% and the other a Democrat by 5%, it would show up as a 2% Democrat state?

Nope; Joe was very close.

The shade determines the decade that the senior senator was born in.  For example, 1930s = >30%; 1950s = >50%, etc.

Something to do with the 1996 presidential election?

Republican vote, 1984? Minnesota is pretty low and DC is (of course) very low, so that's what I'd be guessing.


Democrat vote? Since Joe guessed 1996, I'm going with that.

Nope. I forgot to fix DC, but it's fine now.

There's one state on each map that could lead to an "Aha!" when viewed in conjuction with its surroundings. The first is Minensota, on the Republican side. The second, probably a better clue, is Virginia on the Democratic side.

Okay, I'm more than likely thinking about this too hard.  The red map is the combined Democratic vote for 1992 and 1996, up against the average Republican vote across both elections, and the blue map is the exact opposite for 1980 and 1984.  Anywhere close?

On the Republican map, since DC is greyed out, is it Congressional?

Nope. It's presidential. But why would DC be missing on a Presidential map?

Would it be grayed out because the map refers to an election before DC was given a vote?

Nope. Think of a reason DC would be gray on the Republican side but not the Democratic side.

Number of elections since that party won the state?

The Republicans have never won DC, and all the light red states haven't voted Democratic since '64.

I've been determined to post this one for three days, only to be beaten to it by Ben by about forty seconds.  Well here it goes anyway:
