I'm guessing this is how Americans see European countries.

Obviously. "Thanksgiving meal" pretty much gave it away.

I'm not so sure I agree with "Mummy." That's Egypt. And everybody knows that there's no such place as Luxembourg, so why is it colored in a different shade than Belgium?

"Mummy" probably means the British accent version of "Mommy", as in "I can't stay around and chat with you chaps over tea, my mummy's got me doing her dirty house work."

Anyone care to take a gander?



Something to do with either JFK or Bill Clinton most likely. Is it "Buchanan in 1996", or something?

Very good, but that's not it.

I'll give you a hint: you're two thirds right.

OK, that means I have two options left: Perot in '96, or Buchanan in '92. Perot would seem credible if not for the fact that he carries Mississippi, however, I can't see Buchanan making it a tight race in states like Califonia and Maine. However, it has to be one of those two, right?

Blue: states that voted for neither JFK or Bill clinton and voted Republican
Ligth Blue: States that voted for Bill Clinton but not JFK
Green: State that didn't vote for Bill Clinton or JFK, but didn't vote straight Rpeublican, either.
Light Red: States that voted for JFK but not Bill Clinton
Red: States that voted for both Bill Clinton and JFK

That's my rough guess. I can probably adjust it.

Well, first, according to the amp code, this is 1976.

Second of all, I'm guessing you just reversed the colors to normal.

The three turquoise states (Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico) are all swing states (though NM might be blue).

Am I on to something?

Yes, but it's not obvious.



Hint:  The closest state is New Hampshire, with a margin of a mere 38 votes.

I'm taking a stab in the dark here: Kemp/Dole vs. Perot/Wilder vs. someone/else 1992?

'72 giving Schmitz the same % as Wallace '68, average of a uniform national swing of 12.11 and a multiplication of his vote total by 9.53 in each state, taking entirely from Nixon.  Write-ins were used for states where he did not appear on the ballot, in states without specific candidates listed for "write-ins" the total write-in vote was assumed to be for Schmitz, in states that did not report write-ins it was assumed he received 0% of the vote (and therefore would receive 6.055% under these conditions).

EV totals:

Nixon: 394
McGovern: 123
Schmitz: 21



Pretty cool.

Another "for my convenience" maps.



Where do you use these maps? I'd be glad to read it if it's a timeline.

Yep, it's a timeline.  I posted the first bit of it an outline for a while back when I was afraid I had a computer virus.  It's called the Progressive Party.  My goal is to have it done by the end of this summer.

I remember it. Cool to see you're still working on it. I've actually posted maps here for a timeline I"m doing somewhere else.

Nope, its a map of how people refer to their soft drinks.

Red - Coke
Blue - Pop
Green - Soda

(Map based off huge poll, going off the county results. most were obvious by looking at the counties a couple were a bit tougher and just had to guess.)

 

Wait, so Michigan's not the only state that calls it pop?

My attempt at Ted Kennedy winning the nomination in 1980. I couldn't find the schedule so I just went by state.

Blue-Kennedy
Red-Carter
Green-Brown

This is what I actually meant to post, but I ended up getting colors randomly mixed up.

No idea, so I'll go with the first thing thath comes into my head:
Mark Hatfield/Everett Dirksen vs. Pat Brown/Edmund Muskie.

Most likely wrong.

It's data related, not a What-if.

Is it related to party victories in certain states over a period of time?

It's before 1964 but after 1956, meaning it's 1960. That's what I'm getting from Alaska and Hawaii being there, but not DC. Am I right?

It is after 1956, but no. DC was in the election, but... again, it concerns ballots.

@ Feeble, negatory.

This is going to be a tough one, guys. Wink

A specific (third) party?

Can't be Anderson, because he did well in both NH and VT, according to my memory.
In 88, I think Paul got nearly nation wide ballot access aside from Missouri. I'm not gonna count Perot 92, but maybe 96. Maybe it's Gene in 1976. Just throwing ideas out there.

NOTE: I saw this before I posted (see below)
1968

And Dallas totally didn't feed me the answer.

Dalls totally didn't tell me something too.

So, if it's 1968, which apparently it is, I don't think it'd be George Wallace given that, well, if I remember correctly he won Georgia (which is red) and other states (that are  blue). I hope it's not some obscure thing like the People's Party, the Socialist Workers' Party, or something like that.

Progressive (green): 251
Conservative (yellow): 133
Democrat (red): 130
Republican (blue): 17

Possible 1928 map. The Dems have "Alfalfa Bill" Murray (OK) and Pat Harrison (AL) on their ticket. Conservatives have Calvin Coolidge (MA) and maybe Jack Garner (TX), Progs, I don't know yet, and Republicans have two people you've never heard of before (IL), (WI).
