D: 294, R: 244

The ideal Democratic "Whistling Past Dixie" map - a slight message-tweak to give the Democrats a libertarian bent and dropping asinine issues like 'gun control' would be enough to give us this, or something very similar, in a close election. 

The book you cite looks like an interesting read, but with all due respect to the author, I'm not so sure that I would consider Virginia a "Southern" state any more.  Yes they were certainly part of the confederacy, but in terms of national politics, Virginia is beginning to look more and more like a mid-Atlantic state.

I would have guessed 1988 with a 2% swing to Dukakis, but that would also flip Connecticut...

Actually it's a 2.5% swing to Dukakis, and no that wouldn't have flipped Connecticut, although it would have come very close.  Go back and check the 1988 results, and you'll see what I mean.

1984 with a dead even popular vote assuming that there was a uniform swing among all 50 states.
