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?
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.
