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.
Given the large number of blue states, I'm thinking something to do with percentage of counties going to candidates.

I'd guess it has something to do with the swing, though South Dakota kind of muddies that.

It does indeed have something to do with the swing. (And I've just rechecked SD, but it's depicted correctly.)

Last hint, because now it should be really easy:
Think about Alabama.

Losers. It's the share of the increase in the major party vote, ie (for blue states):
(Bush2004-Bush2000)/((Bush2004-Bush2000)+(Kerry2004-Gore2000))

In Alabama, Kerry received marginally fewer votes than Gore.

Gray is the first 15 states.  Yellow is all the rest admitted until 1820.  So I guess this is the time that each state did something which is not being admitted to the union, but somehow coincided with that for the first few states?

You're on the right lines.  It is politically-oriented, however.

Difference in monthly mean temperature?

Green states have less change between their hotest and coldest month (cold winters/cool summers or warm winters/hot summers).

Red states have a greater change between their hotest and coldest month (hot summers/cold winters).

I don't think that's right, but I thought I should take a guess.

Interesting, but well off. Think of why Delaware is the lowest and Texas, Georgia and Kentucky are the highest.

I don't think that is the answer but I will try.

The percentage of persons who own a firearm.

Gray are the states without statistics on this.

Gray = the state has roughly the average number of counties
Green = more than the average
Red = less than the average

The darker the shade, the further away from the average it is.

Each number represents how many House Speakers have come from that state.
