The 2000 and 2004 electoral maps might look very similar, but also have their differences. Which one do you think looks more aesthetically pleasing (not just at the state level, but counties/etc.)?

2004 easily as it actually looks like a jigsaw puzzle.

'04.One of the few maps nowadays to not have a clunky Red spike between AZ and TX.

'04 easily, aside from the map (which looks somewhat better), it didn't have the entire election decided upon a couple hundred votes in FL.

2004, although IA looks like a weird visual out-liar.

2004 for the reasons people mention, though it would have been cool if Bush could pick off one state in each of Kerry's areas - NH in the Northeast, Wisconsin in the west, and Oregon in the west.

2004.  It is easily the most aesthetically pleasing map since 1940.

For the 20th century, going purely on aesthetics:

1. 1904
2. 1916
3. 1940
4. 2004
5. 1924

Regionalism leads to much more visually appealing maps than the present cities/suburbs/rural divide, so I don't think we will see something as attractive looking as 2004 for quite some time.  Maybe a Dem winning by 5ish in the 2030's?



But this map gets very ugly very quickly if any New England states go for the Republican.
