Two Democratic/Independent Senators (because of Vermont)=Red
Two Republican Senators=Blue
In case of a tie, the House delegation is used.

Is it something like this.  The only problems are Florida and Montana I believe.

It's a little simpler than that!

The states are colored in accordance with the longest serving senator?

I was thinking this was the party affiliations of the representatives of each state's last congressional district.  Except that Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Wisconsin are wrong, so now I don't know.

You're sort of on the right track.  I also incorporated an idea from one of your other maps.

The longest serving representative of each state?

Correct.

How long each state has gone for each party, but why is Utah lighter than Wyoming and Idaho?
Correct, based on the number of Presidents in a row (Example-if it's been solid GW Bush it's >30%, Clinton >40%, etc.)  Utah's only lighter because I guess I accidentally clicked >80% rather than >90%

I believe it's something with the vote of every state since 1824 or something.  For all the states made after 1824, it's their first vote in a presidential electin.  Am I close?

After looking through old election results, I'm going to guess that it's each state's first popular vote result on or after 1856.

Correct, since 1856 was the first election with the two major parties.

I think John Lewis (D) the longest-serving Rep. from GA.

I just checked, and yes he is.  John Lewis was elected in 1986 - six years before four other Georgian Reps.
You're right, I messed that one up.

Treat Ind <30% as gray, I'm too lazy to change it.

1992, with Perot getting a good chunk of Clinton's votes?



Nope, close though (Does not involve Perot)

A 30% swing to Nader or so (in 2000)?

Red states have lost EVs over time, and blue states have gained them.  Gray states have stayed the same since statehood.

I have to admit that the only reason I got this one is 'cause somebody else did it before. Wink

Haha, well it's correct anyway.  BTW, Delaware only had 4 EVs for one decade (the 1810s IIRC)

No, 2004.  You might have to do a bit of looking around (BTW, Oregon is a really a tie between GOP and Independent)

May be got with blind guesswork, but creating it required some research.
Ignore the Maine & Nebraska CDs.
Grey means tied. Vermont is tied between Democrats and Independents.
Hint: Look at the EV.

Something about Forum Posters?

Here's a stab-the number of Congresspeople born in each state?

DING. We have a winner.

I got lucky, I was looking up the Minnesota congressmen right before I saw this and noticed a number were born in ND, I wonder why that is.

Kerry's % of the vote in every state.  OK, ID and UT are less than 30
