Because of the colors, if you'll stare into the map for about 30 seconds, an optical illusion kicks in that makes it look VERY 3D.

Man, if we could get rid of LA, Chicago, and NYC, we'd win by 90%, eh?

Looks Like the Dims inhabit the banks of the Mississippi River, almost all the way down. Or am I seeing things.



Those are very poor, agrarian, low-population-density, predominantly black counties.

No, that's been obvious from 1992 and maybe even before that.

They should show Kerry wins as pits, not pinnacles. Chicago would reach to the other side of the world.

After looking at the following map, I suspect that the bars are population per county. The map is found at http://www.esri.com/censuswatch/graphics/census2000_p9_lg.gif.

What is the Delta?


The word "delta" in the region of the Mississippi River has come to represent many different ideas. According to the Lower Mississippi Delta Region Initiatives it includes a total of 308 counties and parishes in Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, and Tennessee as well as the entire states of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. In natural resource terms, the Mississippi Delta is the alluvial valley stretching from southern Illinois to central Louisiana at the junction of the Red, Atchafalaya, and Mississippi Rivers. Geologically, this was a deep valley eroded by the Mississippi during the Pleistocene Era when the sea level was 200 feet below its present stand.

Poverty Tightens Grip On Mississippi Delta
Number of Young Rural Poor Rises, Study Says

By Robert E. Pierre
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, July 17, 2004; Page A03

COAHOMA, Miss. -- The abandoned shells of buildings along the main drag here serve as a glum backdrop for the youngsters who sit in front of them for hours, idly chatting and staring into the occasional passing car. A liquor store and convenience store are the only places to shop. The little work available is seasonal or at casinos 25 miles away.


Poverty, like an annoying out-of-town cousin, has settled into this Mississippi Delta town for an extended stay. Fifty-five percent of households in this community of 350 take in less than $15,000 a year, well below the federal poverty line of $18,850 for a family of four. The last of the town's shacks, which lacked toilets and insulation, were retired only in the last decade, after Habitat for Humanity made destroying them a priority.

Leroy Bush has lived here all his life, picking cotton and working odd jobs to make ends meet. A decade ago, he became a homeowner in exchange for 500 hours' worth of "sweat equity" and a promise to pay $100 a month on an interest-free mortgage that covers the cost of the land, insurance and materials. The labor was free.

"Everybody here is just trying to make it," said Bush, 55, who works with his wife, Clarethea, at a nearby casino. "We do the best we can."

EXCERPTED...

The height of the blocks is the MARGIN in total votes. So, a very populous county that is close (Cincy, Ohio; or Louisville, Ky) will not stick up very far, either red or blue. The huge towers are Dem areas with lots of people (and they're not all fraudulent, by any means-- don't make the same mistake as the Dem loons. There are a lot of people who disagree with us, and that's where they are). The GOP areas with few voters are red, but with little height. Where Bush won the election was in the "low bumpy" red areas -- Big GOP %, and a fair number of voters.

New york city is not as prominent becasue the map is BY COUNTY. NYC has 5 counties, 4 of them large DEM margins (200-400 K), but not as large as cook and LA, which include all of the central city and huge swaths of suburbs. Total pop of LA county = 10 million; Cook co -- 6 million. Each of the NYC counties only 2 million.

Philly did not have 120% turnout of registered (nor did it in 2000), It gets no coverage becasue it didn't happen. Look up the stats on the PA web site. About 1 million registered, about 600K voted. The registration rolls are padded (as some places elsewhere -- Alaska has been at about 110% of population), but the vote is right in line with other places (even a bit low) as a % of eligible voting-age population.

Ohio has posted the number of provisional ballots, by County. It mirrors the regular ballots pretty well. That is, the # of provisionals is about 2-4% of the number of regular. A bit higher in cities and student areas, lower in rural areas, but not by much.

Dems are popular only in major cities. Republicans are popular everywhere else in the country - PING.

This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen masquerading as "data".

The mass of Alaska's "vote" is so enormous as to make the thing unrepresentative of anything real at first glance.

The size of the Los Angeles "vote" appears four times bigger than the NYC "vote".

If you look at the volume of these rectangles, there is no way Bush won the popular vote. Except, of course, that he did, by 3.5 million. Unless you count those 20 million Republican voters up in Alaska.

I get the fact that cities vote Dem, and the Burbs and the country vote GOP, but this "representation" isn't representative of anything.

"The height shows county population. It demonstrates that Dems are an urban phenomenon."

The high populated areas are easiest to commit large amount of fraudulent votes. No phenomenon there.

Does living next to large water masses have anything to do with being liberal? Weird.

It's simple: most cities were founded along waterways or as ports (that's why they grew more rapidly than other settlements, and thus became cities). Urban areas are Democratic strongholds. Thus, the heaviest Democrat voting is found in areas along major rivers and in port cities, giving the illusion that living near water induces political insanity.

Indeed. And centuries later, the folks that were raised in a way, or with personal inclination towards interdependency (as opposed to rugged independence), tend to employ our freedom to live where we choose to move to cities. They move their attracted by the socialist benefits (mass transit, public spaces, etc.) and willing to enjoy the paid-for infrastructure, and to fund the latte-parlors and sushi restaurants (mmmm, sushi!). Then, to the pleasure of the city fathers who shut down trash collection and police protection (of the disarmed populace) at the slightest hint of a slowdown at the rate of increase of tax increases, they vote for more taxes!

Put short:

Democrats like cities.
