Arnold Schwarzenegger/Rudy Giuliani run against Harry Reid/Dave Freudenthal and base their entire campaign on the theme "we f#^$ing hate the Rocky Mountains and the plains".

Its 1944, FDR gets the Republican nomination, Dewey getes the Democratic nomination, and the German counter-offensive at the Ardennes peaks just before the election.

Er, FDR was from New York and the South was the massive Democrat stronghold in those days.

Er, I have FDR winning New York and the Democrat and Republicans switched, so I don't see what your big problem is.

Gabu- no prob Smiley


"Cactus Jack" Garner somehow wins the 1940 Democratic nomination and runs a weak campaign, focused around Kansas and Utah.

Mad props to whoever can figure this one out (I didn't make this randomly):

That's almost 1972 with a 10% swing in every state to McGovern... am I close?

Yeah, that's half of it. There's another part to it as well.

Bah, I haven't gotten it yet, but I'll be back. Tongue

Ok, no one has gotten yet, its probably too hard. Its a Goldwater vs. McGovern race drawn from a combination of the 1964 and 1972 maps where I gave each candidate a the fraction of the total Goldwater/McGovern percentage for that state. So if Goldwater got 38% in 1964 and McGovern won 37% in 1972, Goldwater won with 51%. Basically it's a map of which red states were more lopsided for Johnson in '64 than for Nixon '72 and blue states were more lopsided for Nixon in '72 than for Johnson in '64.

The conductor: 10% swings toward McGovern & Carter.

Just a wild guess based off of the shade of Indiana, is it the % of the population that is a member of the KKK?

But why would GA be the same shade as NH?

It was a wild guess based on my very limited knowledge of what I was guessing about and is very likely to be wrong. Tongue

Something to do with education?

I'm guessing this has been done sometime before, but I found this curious:



Which party the state has voted for most frequently in the past 100 years?

No, it has to do with a specific election.

1980 shift to Carter
