Wally,

I assume that the red areas represent counties of decent hardworking folk with solid moral fiber who went for Bush, and the blue areas represent counties populated with rabid liberal hand-wringers, gay-adoption advocates, and welfare queens who hoped to benefit from Kerry, but what about the gray? Are those the out-of-touch space cadets that preferred Nader /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

LOL, that is a great description. I think the gray areas are the not yet fully counted areas.

Interesting to look at the Kerry states vs. the Bush states. Most of the Bush states are entirely red, and most of the Kerry states are almost all red. It really highlights the disparity between urban and rural voters.

I noticed that some states on the map are 100% red, but I don't think any states were 100% for Bush. Can you explain?

And Wally, arent your cheeks aching from the non-stop smiling?

That doesn't mean nobody in Oklahoma voted for Kerry, it just means he did not win a majority in any county.

Hi Ross,

OT, but I traced your map URL back to your home page. (I was looking for other years, I wanted to see the Clinton maps)

Anyway, I noticed your interests are dots and lines. I'm more into geometrical shapes myself, but the dot and line people have always interested me. What do you like more, dots or lines? I noticed you put the dots first, but the lines were bigger... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Wally, Duke sets up that goofy "starter homepage" automatically for everyone who has an e-mail address there. I had nothing to do with it. But if I had to choose, I would go with lines, since you could use a very short line to represent a dot. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I don't remember where I found that presidential vote map. It was a great site with all of the election info back to GW (the original one, with false teeth). I can't find it now, though.

Sure you didn't get the blue and red reversed? I don't recall Nixon being trounced in '72 /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Actually, it was the other way around. Nixon soundly trounced McGovern in '72 - 520 Electoral votes to 17.

Exactly - so why is Ross's map nearly solid blue?
