Blue and Red within States

Here is a variation of the Purple America design via Cheryl Charles -- she came up with the idea and design, while her husband did the actual development.  (You can CC her on comments at [email protected]).


Blend the Blue and red together within each state, and you end up with something like this:

It looks like you got Ohio backwards. The northern lakeshore counties went for Kerry, while the Southern counties, including Columbus and Cincinnati went Bush.

I don't know where you get you "Facts" from , but you are nuts. I live in upstate NY and your lamebrain map shows upstatae going to the idiot Kerry and the lower to Bush. That dump NYC always overrides the rest of us with its stinking liberal democratic votes. recheck your figures, almost ever county in upstate, with the exception of St. Lawrence County voted overwhelmingly for Bush.

dave and jenna are both idiots, and dave in particular is a lamebrain. If Kerry won, the state blue is on top. If bush won, the state is red on top. the amount of blue vs. red in each state is proportional to their percentage of the vote. so dave, Kerry won NY making the top blue. Its that lack of simple common sense by stinking conservative republicans that won this election for you.

Hey Jenna, not that it matters, but Kerry won Columbus Ohio (Franklin County).

I prefer these maps:

regarding the parallels between voting and:
firearm deaths
teen pregnancy
and how the democrats are paying for it

You unmitigated idiots, this isn't a map showing which parts of the state went to which candidate. (Christ, get a fucking BRAIN, will you?) It shows each state with the appropriate proportion of red versus blue, with the majority depicted as the top portion, then averages that to a purple.

The dumbing-down of America--brought to you live on the Internet. Where any moron with an AOL account can hold forth like the troglodytic social parasite he is...farting through the mouth and fingertips before thinking or checking his facts.

What I'd like to see is a third map like Cheryl's, showing the nonvoting electorate for each state. Of the total eligible US electorate, 29.6 percent voted for Bush, 29.4 percent voted for Kerry, and 40 percent voted for nobody at all. You want to talk about a mandate? I'd really like to see how those nonvoters are distributed by state. My hunch is that proportionally more of them are in the so-called red states, where people get lynched for being anything other than white gap-toothed racist Jesus-humpers who are America's real welfare mothers (rural people, farmers, and SUV drivers at the top of the list).

Why do all republicans lack common sense, and therefore have IQ's that match those who are slightly above mentally retarded? I'm happy that my homestate of Connecticut kept it's True Blue status. The northeast should be its own country; maybe we'll let California and Hawaii in too. The south just sucks.

Morris P. Fiorina would really agree with the blended red and blue mixture that causes some purple. It is true that some states clearly prefered one president over the other but it is also important to note that the views of the american people are not polarized and states cannot simply be divided by red and blue. The mix of red and blue does exist.
