Yes, something to do with a swing that results in a McGovern victory or something close to a victory?

You are both Correct Smiley. It is indeed a 10 percent swing to the McGovern/Shriver ticket, if only McGovern got that close in 1972...

Blatant ripoff of a map I did some time ago (McGovern/Cronkite vs. Nixon/Agnew).

Nothing to do with politics or demographics:




Percentage of land owned by the national park service, or number of national parks, or something of the sort?

Edit: on second glance, that doesn't explain New York.  Percentage of protected land?

Here, I'd be impressed if anyone could get this.



It has to do with the French presidential election of 2007, colours are normal (blue UMP, red PS).

Correct, but how much? (Meaning what's the approximate nationwide vote share here)

No, sorry, but good try.

Think more about the geographical landscape itself.

Maybe a 5% swing to Royal?

Difference between highest and lowest point:

>20: x< 2500 ft
>30: 2500 ft < x < 5000 ft
>40: 5000 ft < x < 7500 ft
>50: 7500 ft < x < 10000 ft
>60: 10000 ft < x < 12500 ft
>70: 12500 ft < x < 15000 ft
>80: x > 15000 ft (I think California and Alaska are the same color...)

Wow, exactly right!  Cheesy

I was very surprised to see that Kansas and Nebraska were not only not the flattest states, but weren't even in the same bracket as the several states that actually were flatter.

It's actually adding 3.04% to Royal everywhere to get an exact 50-50 tie. Smiley

Erc - I'm about to look to see which year your map is.

        Okay, looked. 1896 with a swing of, I don't know 10% to the Republicans?

The map is 1896, but that's not the whole story there...

Sorry guys, been a bit busy these past couple of weeks and haven't had much chance to get online and give this much thought...

Erc, I'm still pondering yours.

Xahar, that whole Texas switch thing has me intrigued... is it something to do with states that have finalised their primaries for Congress or something?

Ben, what level of government is yours?

Nope. Think about something that happened on April 18. It has to do with states of birth.

No idea if this has been done before, but it should have been. DC and VT should be D>90. AL should be R>100.

Something to do with state politics. Alaska would imply that it has to do with the legislature, though California nullifies that...

Nope. Wrong track entirely. This is about a presidential election.
