Excellent. The map was updated to include the new configurations of TX-25 and GA-12 (each of which went more narrowly for Kerry than under the old lines).

Aren't the little red tendrils coming out of red splotches in Illinois and North Carolina and other places interesting? Can you say gerrymandering kids? I knew you could. :)

It's an interesting exercise to compare that map with this photo, which shows the lights in the USA at night. The more light, the more people:

"Urban democrats controlling the polling places do us in."

Same here. Except, of course when I'm working the polls...where full body cavity searches are mandatory if you forget your ID and still want to vote in my 'Cow Town' Town Hall, LOL!

Illegal aliens. (Border counties and congress districts.)

Indian reservations.

San Francisco, Berkeley, other college towns and government-worker union/state employee-dominated capitols (like Austin, Atlanta, etc.) inotherwise blue-county states

Urban unemployed/welfare/minority and Labor union-dominated. (Mississippi River, southern rural areas, extreme northeast, Michigan/Detroit, Rust belt around Great Lakes.)

Any combination of the above.
...

So, who votes democrat?

Unions & State and government employees: If you include the ignorant and the unemployed and illegals in that group.

We should be able to turn western Wisconsin and the Minnesota Iron Range. Those are two key swing states that are within reach.

I'm sure people living at either end of the district feel mighty neighborly to each other.

We actually have already taken the lead in Wisconsin. The rats were only able to hold on in the last 2 elections through fraud -- Milwaukee in 2004 and Madison in 2000. All we have to do now is either stop the fraud or build enough of a lead that they can't cheat. (See the Hewitt book).

Why do they switch the colors. I thought for a minute that Dems dominated the U.S. It is strange that they would screw up an important map like this. Do you think it was an oversite?

I had somebody at work try and tell me that smart people voted for Kerry.

So I whipped out the NJ vote map and asked if all the smart people in NJ lived in Newark and Camden. And if that was the case, why did two red counties have the highest incomes in the country?

Needless to say she hasn't confronted me on politics since.

The colors are as they should be. When Ronald Reagan won it was a see of blue across the country. The media, knowing that psychologically most people associate the color red with danger switched the colors around afterwards.

Besides, if anyone identifies with the "Reds" it's the Democrats.

According to the 2004 ecit poll, there is a (slight) non-linear relationship between education and voting tendency. Those with the least education and those with post-college education tended to vote for Kerry, while those with a high school to college education tended to vote for Bush.

VOTE BY EDUCATION
EDUCATION (% OF SAMPLE) BUSH KERRY NADER

No High School (4%) 49% 50% 0%

H.S. Graduate (22%) 52% 47% 0%

Some College (32%) 54% 46% 0%

College Graduate (26%) 52% 46% 1%

Postgrad Study (16%) 44% 55% 1%

Since income is highly correlated with vote tendency, it is reasonable to suppose that MDs, MBAs, and other professionals having postgrad educations tended to vote for Bush, while PhDs and MAs tended to vote for Kerry.

I don't think any conclusion is warranted regarding the level of education (or level of intelligence, which isn't the same thing) and voting tendency. I think its the type of knowledge. People who are into the the sciences and professions tend to be conservative, and people who are into the humanities tend to be liberal.

I understand your post but she was in no way talking about education and degrees. She was alluding that everyone that voted for Bush was stupid. My argument dispelled that notion.
