The two-variable contiguous area cartogram below depicts enumeration units proportionally scaled to the data that they represent, namely electoral votes. The more electoral votes in a state, the larger the area of the state. The states are shaded with the color of the candidate winning the electoral votes.
How can we put together another Reagan-style majority?
Iowa and New Mexico still haven't voted?
LOL. It should be colored in Red.
They had not at the time this map was created, I guess.
Alaska looks like a bug that hit the windshield.
Leave it to liberals to create an electoral map that looks like an abortion.
What did you do to Alaska? Are we just a piece of fireweed dander blowing in the wind now?
Wisconsin and PA will turn Red in coming elections, as will Michigan, and believe it or not, even Minnesota will be red too... When exactly? Can't say, but provided the Dems continue their path to turn the US into a "secular socailist democracy" and the Republicans continue to put up solid candidates.. the midwest will become as RED and reliably so as the south, with perhaps the exception of IL, due to the liberal bastion of Chicago.
The Midwest, and MidAtlantic states are going through the shift that the south went through already..... The population of the remaining blue states will continue to decline as they did in the last census, while the growing economies of the south and other red state areas will continue to increase the red states electoral influence.
The Democrats must reject the radical socialist secular democracy and other fringe groups they now embrace wholey if they desire to ever truly be anything but an obstructionist party again.
Simply shows which states have large cities full of government workers and their dependent minions.
This is probably the most worthless chart I have ever seen in my life. If they want to show an electoral vote comparison, a simple bar or pie chart will do. All this does is distort the reality that lib voters are mostly concentrated in small geographic urban areas.
I didn't make this map. I just found it.
Yours is the best analysis yet.
It makes theblue states look fat and lazy.
What an ugly map.
Note they didn't do it by county, but by state. by county they look lame even with population size adjustments to county land area.
Maybe so, but the real Alaska does look like your map. The big chunk of land we usually think of as Alaska is imaginary.
Naw, that is just one of our mosquitoes, actual size.
Looks like Pangea
