It's fairly easy, but see if you can figure it out.

Bush's current approval ratings?

Nope, think historical (but not too historical).

1992? Adding Clinton and Perot's vote?

hint: nothing to do with Democrats or Republicans

I'll take a guess that I know is wrong and say the Blue states have English only as the "Official" Language.
New Mexico uses English & Spanish; Hawai'i uses English & Hawai'in; but Louisiana uses French & English, so either I'm wrong or the map is.

No, that's not it.  All of those blue states have voted Democratic at least once since then.

That is exactly right! Although Maine & Minnesota were tied and the Governor broke the tie, the two "Independet's" in Vermont caucus with the Dem, so voted that way. And, of course, no vote for DC

Actually, shouldn't Michigan be blue (House: 6D, 9R; Senate: 2D, 0R)

HINT: The only other nation in the world that this map could extend to is Canada, and in that case, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta would be pink, while Ontario would be D>70. The rest would all be R>50.

Here, I'll make it easier for you:

Light Red
California
Colorado
Connecticut
Croatia
Italy
Kansas
Kentucky
Oklahoma
Pennsylvania
Poland
Portugal
Prince Edward Island
Quebec
Tennessee
Texas
Turkey

Dark Red
Belarus
Belgium
Bosnia & Herzegovina
British Columbia
Bulgaria
Delaware
Denmark
District of Columbia
Greece
Idaho

Dark Orange
Alabama
Alaska
Albania
Alberta
Illinois
Latvia
Lithuania
Louisiana
Luxembourg

Light Yellow
Austria
Cyprus
Estonia
Finland
Florida
France
Hawaii
Hungary
Iceland
Ohio
Saskatchewan (omg I spelled this right the first time?!?)
Serbia
Slovenia
South Carolina
South Dakota
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland

Dark Yellow
Azerbaijan
Virginia
Vermont

Dark Green
England
Indiana
Macedonia
Maine
Malta
Manitoba
Maryland
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minnesota
Mississippi
Missouri
Moldova
Montana
Montenegro
Nebraska
Netherlands
Nevada
New Brunswick
New Hampshire
New Jersey
New Mexico
New York
Newfoundland & Labrador
North Carolina
North Dakota
Northern Ireland
Northwest Territories
Norway
Nova Scotia
Nunavut
Ontario

Dark Blue
Arizona
Arkansas
Armenia
Iowa
Ireland
Oregon
Romania
Russia
Ukraine
Utah
Wales
Washington
West Virginia
Wisconsin
Wyoming
Yukon Territory

Light Pink
Czech Republic

Dark Purple
Georgia (the country)
Georgia (the state)
Germany

I even alphabetized it Smiley

Couldn't find anyone who answered this, so I will.  It's the phonetic characteristics of the first consonant sound in the name.  Green is nasal, yellow is fricative, and so on.  Dark means voiced, light means unvoiced.  As a speaker of American English, I demand a separate color for Idaho and Italy, where the first consonant is a flap.

No, that's not it.  All of those blue states have voted Democratic at least once since then.

largest vote total in an elction since 1960?

Nobody has gotten it yet.  Here's a hint: It's based on a single election.
