Here's another one. It's unrelated to my first map.

How each state has voted since 1992.

Dark Blue=Republican all 5 times
Medium Blue=Republican 4/5 times
Light Blue=Republican 3/5 times
Light Red=Democrat 3/5 times
Medium Red=Democrat 4/5 times
Dark Red=Democrat all 5 times

This one should be easy, but note that the map will change very soon.



Current governors. Missouri will be changing soon though.

I was going to suggest something along the lines of population growth, but I don't think it is because NM would seem to be wrong if that were the case. Is it demographic, economic or political?

It is political. The color is arbitrary, but the percentages are not.

     I know the red states have passed bans on gay marriage, so would the shades represent the percentage that voted yes?

Yep. Smiley

Also, it has puzzled me why SD only voted 52%-48% to ban gay marriage when surrounding states voted 73%-27% (ND), 70%-30% (NE), and 67%-33% (MT) to ban it. Does anyone know anything about that? It was in 2006, but that margin was closer than the votes on bans in any other state including Oregon, California, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Colorado.

Swing to 50%-50% (of the two party vote). Add ~1.23% to the Dems in each state and subtract ~1.23% from the Republicans in each state.
