So was Kentucky. Tennessee was a part of N.Carolina. Maine was a part of Massachusetts. Vermont was in dispute between several states. Oh, and DC was a part of Maryland.

I had the same idea. I'm sure it's something to do with Congressional delegation.

Okay, I'll solve it.
Party to win majority of counties in 2004.

Haha.  That's an interesting, though a bit depressing, map Lewis.  Tongue
At least your guys have New Jersey.
Aren't you glad Democrats are winning a majority of counties in New Jersey? Smiley

Out of curiousity, how would such a map look using 2000 results?
Identical except for New Hampshire. I think. I'd want to check a couple of states, but I can't think of any other that might switch. I know NH would.

Ah, I was thinking maybe Iowa would switch.  I haven't looked in a while but Gore did pretty well county wise in Iowa even if he won by a hair in the PV.
Kerry did too. I think the net swing in the number of counties was something like two or three. Several counties switched either way.

Here's one for 1996.

In case you think South Carolina is weird...Dem lead is tiny. And so is the Rep lead in Kentucky, Georgia, Florida, and Oklahoma.

EDIT - Overlooked Michigan.
EDEDIT - And Iowa.

Harry runs against George W. Bush. Harry is hut greatly by his lack of experience, but he gets a boost when Bush declares that he wishes that California would fall into the ocean.

Yeah, but that would help in in AZ.  Must have wished CA falls into the ocean and a massive wave turned AZ into a big swimming pool.

haha, well you're both wrong. Think counties.
First county in a state IIRC. I posted that a while ago, on another similar thread.

May be got with blind guesswork, but creating it required some research.
Ignore the Maine & Nebraska CDs.
Grey means tied. Vermont is tied between Democrats and Independents.
Hint: Look at the EV.

No. It does have something to do with numbers of individuals though.

Here's a stab-the number of Congresspeople born in each state?
DING. We have a winner.

I got lucky, I was looking up the Minnesota congressmen right before I saw this and noticed a number were born in ND, I wonder why that is.
Yeah, three of them - Martin Olav Sabo, Jim Ramstad, Colin Peterson. I think there's a strong out-migration pattern. IIRC Hubert Humphrey was born in ND too.
Looks good for BRTD's future political career. Smiley

Do they have some sort of Congressman breeding factory in North Dakota?
Seem to. Three of MN's eight are originally from there.

I'll solve this one. It's based on 1976 and 2000. I had every party increase by as much (as a percentage of the vote) over the 1976 total as they actually decreased, or decrease as much as they actually increased.

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.
And he didn't crack 60% in Vermont, either.
It's a trendline based on 96 and 04 Dem percentages. If current trends continued (they won't o/c), Idaho and Oklahoma would be under 30% by 2012, and Utah under 20%.

Random distribution, you rolled a die for every state?
