I was thinking about making three maps at some point. One with the white vote in general, one with the white male vote only and one with the white female vote only... unless somebody has done this already.

This took me a hot minute, but here is the White Male Only map (according to CNN's exits):



Electoral Vote:

McCain 408
Obama 109
Tied 21

Popular Vote:

McCain 57%
Obama 41%
Others 2%

Barack would be screwed in the old days.

White Female Only map coming later...

Whoa.

It looks like massive racial voting in Texas and other southern states is enough to give him a comfortable popular vote victory but it doesn't do him much good as far as the EC goes.

Do note that I have taken all of this info from the exit polls though, which even at this point are far from perfect.
