If you compare the result of the best Republican performance in each state since 2000 vs Best Dem performance in each state this is how  the map would look like:




Dems 272
GOP 266




If you go by margin IA, CO, and ME-2 are super close but the Democrats narrowly win the states to get over the 270 mark

This is 2008 but adjusted to a national popular vote tie (or polling over the summer in 2008, when Obama led McCain by 1-2 in the PV and had converted those four states -- CO/IA/NM, usually also NV -- from the Bush 2004 coalition). Makes sense.
