Here's an interesting map! The results would be R300-D238



It's the electoral average from elections since 1960.

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

Bush's current approval ratings?

Nope, think historical (but not too historical).

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.

largest vote total in an elction since 1960?

A very select group of people voting in this one, who are they?

Senators? (though I don't understand the shadings)
Close. The shadings are important.

Senators and House members? (Shading is percentage.)
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)

You are correct, somehow I got that backwards, thanks!

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.

largest vote total in an elction since 1960?

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

1992 without Perot?

One final hint: It's based on 1996.
Blue States are those giving Dole >48% of the vote.

Here's an odd map to attempt to figure out!


I'll even give a hint; it uses data from elections since 1960.

Anyone want to put forward a theory about how this could happen in real? lets say in 2000 cuz thats the map ive used.
I'll take a stab and say
Republican's nominate John McCain
Democrats nominate Al Gore
George Bush as an Independent?

It has to do with a certain political office.

State Lt. Governors?


Hillary Clinton vs. Rudy Giuliani?
No, this uses historical data.

1992, splitting up the Perot vote a certain way that favors Bush.
Close; it's actually 1992 & 1996 giving Perot's votes to the Republican candidate.

Green States had no change of Senator in 2006, Blue States=Dem pickup, Red States=Republican pickup

I think we're going to need a bigger clue than that. Tongue
