For 2008...



MD is dependent on whether DC is considered a state for these purposes.

Does anyone want to make a map for any previous year (though it might be wise to eliminate DC and ME since they will be colored every year)?

Since at least 1988, these states have voted more Democratic than all states that border them:

NM
MT (margin of victory, but not party percentage)
ME (margin of victory, but not party percentage)

Republican:

SC
CT
NH

Oklahoma is iffy, but you are probably correct.  Kansas is just slightly more Democratic than we are.

1988 - how can Nebraska and Iowa both be red when they border each other?

Michigan literally shares a border (although by lake and not by land) with both Illinois and Minnesota. Based on that, Michigan should not be colored Dem at any point from 2000-2016 (not going to bother going any farther back than that), and neither should Minnesota in 2000, 2008, and 2012.

By your logic Ohio is on the Canadian border. Fact is, while you're technically correct, you can't drive from Duluth to Marquette without passing through northern Wisconsin.

For this thread, it doesn't really make sense to consider water borders.

1988 - how can Nebraska and Iowa both be red when they border each other?

It appears Nebraska should be blue and Iowa still red.

Does anyone have an explanation of why Montana has been more Dem than states bordering it? (The others are more obvious.)
