We’ve gone Map Crazy!

Over at our sister blog, essays & effluvia [1] (now, 100% Economics free!) I gathered numerous election map post-mortems. Most of these were just lying around the internet gathering dust anyway.

These graphic representations of the election’s outcome are thought provoking.


Popular Vote, Population Density [2]

Proportional Electoral Map [3] (my fave)

Red States Feed at Federal Trough, Blue States Supply the Feed [4]   So much for self-reliance

Where did their votes come from? [5] (interesting 3D comparo)

County-by-County vote, with Population [6]  Self explanatory

Electoral College Over Represents Rural Areas [7]

Voting:  Free versus Slave States [8]  Look how far we’ve come as a country

Purple America [9] (the sentimental favorite)

Red & Blue World [10]  (You know how the States voted; Here’s how the World did)

The Kids Are Alright [11]  How the Youth of America voted . . .

Demographics versus Geography [12]


2000 vs 2004 County by County Election Results [13]

New America (redistricted) [14]

and just for laughs, Jesusland [15]

Cartographic analytics — fun for the whole family!
