...what would they say the national map will look like?

I'd vouch for this:


Someone from 1996 would probably say that the Democrats become more Southern, while the Republicans become more Northern/Midwestern.

It is very important to preserve tradition, but if we wallow in it too much we will never move forward.

I'd say after the 1996 election (hence why I made AZ a tossup).

Your map would basically be what I'd imagine if someone had told me in 1996 that West Virginia would be Solid R and Virginia would be Lean D, ignoring the fact that I was 2 years old in 1996, of course.
