Seriously populist Democrat vs. super-rich hotel magnate Republican from California?

How could I have forgotte The West Wing so fast? I'm ashamed of myself. I always found that election weird, though.

The first map is mine: 1972 with a uniform 10% swing to McGovern. The sceond one is 1964 with a uniform 10% swing to Goldwater.

I had this great idea, but Ben ruined it. Oh well. Here it is:



West Virginia is nonexistant due to a deficiency in the evcalc.

What great idea was that?

That's for me to know and you to find out.

The color represents the affiliation of each state's senior senator, and the shade determines the age difference between them and the junior senator.  (Darker = less difference)

Close, but you're thinking too hard.

Is it the combined margin for both Senators? For example, if one Senator was a Republican elected by 3% and the other a Democrat by 5%, it would show up as a 2% Democrat state?

Nope; Joe was very close.

The shade determines the decade that the senior senator was born in.  For example, 1930s = >30%; 1950s = >50%, etc.

Yes!


Partially.

Republican vote, 1984? Minnesota is pretty low and DC is (of course) very low, so that's what I'd be guessing.


Democrat vote? Since Joe guessed 1996, I'm going with that.

Nope. I forgot to fix DC, but it's fine now.

There's one state on each map that could lead to an "Aha!" when viewed in conjuction with its surroundings. The first is Minensota, on the Republican side. The second, probably a better clue, is Virginia on the Democratic side.

Okay, I'm more than likely thinking about this too hard.  The red map is the combined Democratic vote for 1992 and 1996, up against the average Republican vote across both elections, and the blue map is the exact opposite for 1980 and 1984.  Anywhere close?

Not really.

On the Republican map, since DC is greyed out, is it Congressional?

Nope. It's presidential. But why would DC be missing on a Presidential map?

1976?

Nope.

Would it be grayed out because the map refers to an election before DC was given a vote?

Nope. Think of a reason DC would be gray on the Republican side but not the Democratic side.

Number of elections since that party won the state?

The Republicans have never won DC, and all the light red states haven't voted Democratic since '64.

YES!!!

Does it have to do with Primaries? Perhaps states still to hold Republican Congressional Primaries?

Nope. But I'll give another hint: states of birth.

Yes, something to do with a swing that results in a McGovern victory or something close to a victory?

You are both Correct Smiley. It is indeed a 10 percent swing to the McGovern/Shriver ticket, if only McGovern got that close in 1972...

Blatant ripoff of a map I did some time ago (McGovern/Cronkite vs. Nixon/Agnew).
