An intoxicated Erc breaks into the Diabold headquaters and alters tha nation-wide results.

Pretty much...it is a completely random map (well, as random as you can get with Excel's RAND() function).

At least *my* random map looked quasi-coherent...

Here's a hint while it is political, it doesn't have to do with the Presidency, a bit of research may be required, and the map was no longer applicable in January 2005.

Something to do with the last Senate, presumably.

Although the color scheme (percentage-wise) beats me.

Attempting to figure out what King's map was, I came up with this one:

Note that Maine should be red +20, not +30...and, like the above map, Hawaii should be yellow, not green.

Lowest quintile has a plurality of...whites (blue) / blacks (black) / hispanics (green) / asians (yellow) ?

Figured it was race due to Hawaii's weird color (and that's what inspired my map).

I don't know if anyone will get this one:



I'll start giving hints tomorrow.

First hint: It is based on 1912, and represents a really odd voting pattern.  I would look at South Dakota and Oklahoma for good results (big hint there)

This gets the states rights, but the percentages wrong (in certain states).

Blue has Roosevelt, All the Minor Parties, and 3/8 of Wilson's vote.

Red has Taft and 5/8 of Wilson's vote.

Not really a puzzle map, but just wanted to post it.

2004 with a 55.1-43.4 result.  (4.7% swing, or twice that) [the counterpart to the Dem landslide posted in the 2008 section]

Republicans win Oregon by 94 votes.
Democrats win Pennsylvania (and the election) by 37,000 votes.

The Democrats win Iowa by 11,000 votes, Rhode Island by 9,500, and Hawaii by 766.

And enough of that.  1984 would be quite boring.

Something I just discovered...

The Calculator maps work all the way back to 1824 (although they mess up before West Virginia became a state), interestingly enough.  (And, as pointed out elsewhere, in the future they have Puerto Rico too).



Back to regularly scheduled programming.

Yes, but not the straight results, of course.

On the same vein:

The first one is adding TR's and Deb's votes together.

The second one I cannot quite figure out.  Are Taft's votes split in half or something?

Essentially right on both counts...the first is TR, Debs, and Prohibition (for kicks).  The second is essentially a 75-25 split of Taft's votes in favor of TR.

Probably some boast about "states spending more than $12k / student" or "states sending more than 80% of public school kids to college,"--one of those lists which New Jersey, being a state composed of suburbs, always tops.

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.

I've been determined to post this one for three days, only to be beaten to it by Ben by about forty seconds.  Well here it goes anyway:




From Oklahoma's lack of coloring...throw out all votes for Kerry and Bush and this is what you get?  (Nader in Green, Badnarik in Yellow)
