In this thread, anyone can post a map, and other posters can look at the patterns can guess what the map about.  It's not necessary that someone guesses correctly before another map can be posted.

I'll start.



I'll check this thread and let you know if someone guesses correctly.

Deviation from "expected" vote based on state racial demographics?

Number of executions since death penalty reinstated. WV as a 0, and MO and OK punching above their weight, are the tells.

Nothing to do with popular vote. Shades reflect "counts."

Something to do with the number of times the state voted Democratic for President between 1900 and 1950? I'm trying to account for Maine and Vermont together, plus Alaska, Hawaii, and DC not being counted.

Nope, but close. It the number of times each state has voted for a Franklin on the ticket - 1852, 1920, 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944.

Does it have something to do with an election involving WJB or Woodrow Wilson?

No, and it is policy-based, not election-based

Ratio of state income tax rate to state sales tax rates (red states have higher (top marginal) state income tax rate than sales tax rate, blue states the inverse)?

No, there are only 8 states without income tax (I'm pretty sure they are all blue on this map), but this includes income and other types of taxes in some way.

Clue: Is related to an election held sometime between 1985 and 1999, inclusive.

^^^ Gubernatorial elections in 1990 seem to be the anchor of the map, but chronologically, there doesn't seem to be an exact match for the rest (i.e. results for 1987-1991; results for 1988-1992; etc).

The only thing I can figure (if it's in fact representative of gubernatorial results) is that you've skipped around and are using various non-consecutive election cycles for the off-year ones.

That was rather obvious, considering Alaska and Connecticut.

You're on the right track. Think about the part that I bolded above. Neither of your answers is correct, but you're not too far off.
