I was going to suggest something along the lines of population growth, but I don't think it is because NM would seem to be wrong if that were the case. Is it demographic, economic or political?

It is political. The color is arbitrary, but the percentages are not.

     I know the red states have passed bans on gay marriage, so would the shades represent the percentage that voted yes?

Yep. Smiley

Also, it has puzzled me why SD only voted 52%-48% to ban gay marriage when surrounding states voted 73%-27% (ND), 70%-30% (NE), and 67%-33% (MT) to ban it. Does anyone know anything about that? It was in 2006, but that margin was closer than the votes on bans in any other state including Oregon, California, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Colorado.

An interesting question that I'm going to think about (and probably not come up with an answer, but you never know...)

Since no one answered this one, I will reveal the answer: Obama loses 3.63% and McCain gains 3.63% in every state. McCain wins the popular vote 49.24% to 49.25% and still loses the electoral vote and therefore the election.

Swing to 50%-50% (of the two party vote). Add ~1.23% to the Dems in each state and subtract ~1.23% from the Republicans in each state.

Yeah, it's the way the US is divided into regional jurisdictions for some purpose.  What purpose?

Indeed. But it isn't the exact 2008 trend map. I'm guessing some long-term trend.

So. it's not 1992, because Clinton won Montana. An original thing is that Indiana doesn't appear to be trending democrat : so, in which election democrats did not so bad in Indiana ( about 5 points least than the national margin ) ?

Reasonably close, but you need to be more specific.

Just guessing, but is it perhaps something to do with the Regions used for economic indicators?

No.  A hint: education.
