I don't know, but if you'd like challenges to come up with certain maps, I'd be happy to oblige.

Summary



Red states had other states merged into them and letters indicate which state something was merged into.

Am I the only one that has a problem using a site that uses incomplete election data? For example, the site has Hillary winning CA by about 3.4m when she actually won by closer to 4.3m. That's just one state. Has anyone here tried to contact the individual who created that map?

The website initially updated counties, but since the copyright is still listed as 2016, I'm not sure the owner has done anything since the end of that year.

Looking deeper on his GitHub page I see that he hasn't touched any file since Jan 5, 2017, and the last pull of county data was in Dec 2016. Looking at his data source, townhall.com, I see that like most media outlets they quit updating their data before the official results are declared. I stick with the Atlas and recalculate based on the numbers here if I want to be very accurate.

This is a pretty good source for election data. There's a reason I have it bookmarked.

As you say, it's pretty good. Yet it misses 4 votes for Clinton and 4 for Trump in CA compared to Atlas. Dave Leip does a very thorough job of maintaining and updating his data and correcting errors when noted.

I noticed that if you assign a bunch of populous counties to DC, the EV count stays at 3, allowing for a gargantuan Trumpslide if a few cities are gerrymandered out of their states.

Constitutionally, DC can't have more EVs than any State. The only way it can have more than 3 EV is if every State has more than 3. It might be interesting to see if the app would allow DC to have more than 3 EV in that circumstance.

That isn't even the most fun you can have with the South.
Credit goes to someone on AAD whose wicked state-y-mander I based this on.

What I was trying to do was make all of the light red states democratic but I went to far. On the plus side I made a better one that only changes the lightest 3 and doesn't look like an eldritch horror. Here it is.

Taking a bit of Democratic California and teleport to Coast states where Trump only narrowly won!

Without stuffing millions of votes into a non-contiguous, 3 EV, District of Columbia, this is almost certainly the best Trump can do (I tried fiddling at the margins to see if Huntington-Hill could get NYC down to 11, but no doing. ProbablyCertainly you could merge HI into CA and get Clinton down to 15, but I preferred not to).

Link

Clinton: NYC (exc Staten Island) (12) + HI (4) + DC (3)

Trump: CA-TX-GA 171
FL 25
IL 48
MI 15
TN-OH-NY-New England 111
NC 13
Long Island 6
VA 10
AK 3
39 rectangles between ND and TX, 3 votes each
