Seeing that map cracked me up! Anyway, my response: a fantasy election with George Bush the Democrat and John Kerry the Republican.

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

These ones should also be easy. As with the previous map, these will also change soon.

Frequency of changing sides from one election to the next, hence Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri and Nevada have flipped a number of times, whereas Minnesota and DC have consistantly voted for the one party?

Oh no no, not even close. The map shows how often each state voted for the winning candidate.

Ohio and Missouri (among the darkest states) voted for the winning candidate every time. The lightest "state", DC (which is, of course, not even a state) voted for the winner only thrice (1976, 1992 and 1996).

Since no one answered this one, I will reveal the answer: Obama loses 3.63% and McCain gains 3.63% in every state. McCain wins the popular vote 49.24% to 49.25% and still loses the electoral vote and therefore the election.

Evolution of Changes in the Electoral College between 1990 and 2000 census :
- Dark red : loses 2 seats
- Red : loses 1 seat
- Blue : wins 1 seat
- Dark blue : wins 2 seats

Yes, that is right.

It's another Electoral College changes map. A long term map between 1900 and 2000. Did I guess ?



No, but you are close. It shows the changes in the House between 1900 and 2000 (an electoral college map would have colored AK, AZ, HI, NM and OK darker).

Yes, true. Wink

I also forgot to note that I excluded DC, because it is not a state and has never had full voting representatives; an electoral vote map would have included DC and would have colored it in a shade of blue.

Map 1 : Population growth ( percentage )
Map 2 : Population growth ( number )

Yes, according to the 2000 census.

This map is about the Senate.



And now the House.
