I'll give people a clue: My map has to do with the U.S. House.

Anyone?
LaFollette does better in 1924?

No. If that was the case, then Wisconsin would surely be green, but it is blue on this map. Again, my large hint is that is has to do with the U.S. House of Representatives. Also, someone guessed that it took place in the 1910s, and that was very close, but it wasn't correct.
1890s or 1900s house D, R,Populist?

Very close, but it's not 1890s, 1900s, or 1910s. And the green isn't Populist.
It's in the 1920's and green is Progressive.

No, it isn't. I'll give you a hint. It has to do with candidate percentages in a particular Presidential election.
So it's not necessarily one color per candidate?

No, it isn't necessarily one color per candidate. Basically, all of the colors in my map stand for percentages. For instance, states with [insert color here] are states where both [this presidential candidate] and [this presidential candidate] (in the same year, of course) got at least [insert percentage here] of the vote.

Any guesses?
Gah...
Is it the percentages of Smith in the 1928 election with Green being the states he did the best in, then red then blue?

Just putting this out here as a hint, this map might serve as a message to Republicans focused on Dixie.

I'll give this till tomorrow.

Wrong. 1928 is incorrect. And just hypothetically it could be X color states are states where both candidates got at least 48% of the vote, Y color states be states where both candidates got at least 46% of the vote, and so forth.

Any more guesses? I gave a lot of hints.

Anyone?
You win.

Edit the IMG code.

The numbers don't represent Electoral Votes in this map, though.

Answer: The number of times the GOP has won without a certain state.
Interesting.  I wonder how those numbers would shift if you started with the election right after Alaska became a state....

Don't forget mine.

Can you figure this one ?



That's 2004.  Is it something to do with PVI?

No. That's 2004 indeed, with red representing a certain percentage for democrats and blue a certain percentage for republicans. The shades have the same meaning they have on the Atlas.

Hmmm...Is it the percent that each candidate won the sate by? So if Kerry got 40% of the vote & bush got 50% of the vote it would be Blue >10%?

No way, look at NY and Wisconsin.

Try to look at which States have the 20% shades and which have the 40%. What distinguishes them ?
They all have large hispanic minority populations, right?

Is it the voter turnout of minorities in various states, with lighter colors meaning lower turnout amongst those demographics?

Is it how often a state has been one by the GOP since Eisenhower, with dark blue the most and light blue the least and Washington D.C red because it hasn't been won by a Republican in the past century.

Do the colors contrast states won or lost by certain GOP candidates?

Yes, but lost could also be interpreted as never carried.
Well, Minnesota hasn't been carried by a Republican since Nixon in 1972.  Washington, as you have already conceded, hasn't been carried by any Republican.  It's the light and dark blue that have me stumped.

Reagan's one of them...who's the other?

Lincoln? Eisenhower? Nixon? Dubya?
Nixon is a scumbag and Dubya...bleh.

I guess Lincoln and Ike.  Considering that D.C is on the map, I'm going to say that this map contrasts Eisenhower and Reagan somehow.  Beyond that I dunno.  They both one landslides yet the map seem fairly evenly divided.

http://www.gop.com/index.php/issues/heroes/
The problem is D.C isn't including in the Electoral Maps until 1964, so we have from then to 2008 to work with.  Now that I think about it, that rules out Ike, leaving only Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush Sr., and Bush Jr.  Unless Nixon has been upgrading to hero status I am still at a loss.

Here goes Wink:

Dark Blue+Light Blue= States Reagan carried
Light Blue+Moderate Blue= States Lincoln Carried
Red= States (Districts) Neither Reagan nor Lincoln carried
I see.  That explains the regional divide.  DC really threw me off, though.

You'll never figure out this one.


Can we go ahead and clarify that this is data from elections 1968 and up because of the presence of D.C?

1992 if perot picked up 20% of bush voters and 20% of clinton's
Actually it's 10% each but I will give it to you.  Perot was polling at 39% before dropping out after which he got 19% in the election.  So that's a hypothetical map if he stayed in and got a +20% bonus in every state (obviously not realistic but the best I can do on that data) and pulled evenly from Bush and Clinton.

Did you transfer a certain percentage of votes from Nixon to Wallace in each state?
