This map is not random, it actually has a VERY simple explanation.

Who can figure it out?

Alabama-Kansas is Republican
Kentucky-North Carolina is Third Party
North Dakota-Wyoming is Democrat

It's the 1984 percentages in a 2004 map.

Two Democratic/Independent Senators (because of Vermont)=Red
Two Republican Senators=Blue
In case of a tie, the House delegation is used.

Is it something like this.  The only problems are Florida and Montana I believe.

I think it's Somliland and East Timor attacking.

It's less than a 10% swing to Perot, because Maine is less than 40%.    Also, more of the swing had to come from Bush because North Carolina switched.  I don't understand why South Dakota switched though, Florida was closer, and it didn't switch.

I think it's the John Quincy Adams reelection map, in a 2004 election.

How long each state has gone for each party, but why is Utah lighter than Wyoming and Idaho?

I believe it's something with the vote of every state since 1824 or something.  For all the states made after 1824, it's their first vote in a presidential electin.  Am I close?

I think that might be partially right, but it also looks almost identical to 1856.

But that was Utah's vote in its first election in 1896.  This was also its first election.

It's 1976 with a swing of like 1 billion to Carter

It's not a uniform swing.  For Carter to get a majority in Alaska, he would need a swing of 14.35%, but that would put him over 80% in Georgia, which he is not in this map.

Looks to me like 1976 shifted a considerable amount to Carter...

I think Ebowed assumed Carter got over 40% in every state that Ford didn't get 60%, but Carter got less than 40% in quite a few states.

Reagan vs. Mondale, but Mondale says everyone in his home state are "fascist pigs".  Also, a huge terrorist attack blows up Minneapolis and St. Paul.  Reagan immediately rescues the rest of the state, while Mondale calls the terrorists brave.

Is it something to do with how long a state has had Senators from a certain party?

The answer to this one is really simple, although it may take some thinking to get it.

is it based of a FDR election?

Nope, it's based on a presidential election roughly halfway between FDR's last election and the present.

Is it based on 1976?

Yep.

C'mon, people, if you're thinking this hard about what convoluted mess the answer could be, you're thinking too hard. Smiley

Something like a 5 point swing to Carter in Ford states, and vice-versa in Carter states.  This wouldn't explain Wisconsin though.

Kerry's % of the vote in every state.  OK, ID and UT are less than 30

No, the only states east of the Mississippi Kerry didn't get over 40% in were Indiana, Kentucky, Alabama, and Mississippi.

That would probably work, but what about Idaho and Nevada?
