Another way to look at the U.S. election results.

And which keeps us away from that red state/blue state dichotomy.

Voting problem map

Says map creator Jeff Culver:

I was thinking today about how the 'red v. blue' states graphic is really misleading considering the slim margins that the candidates won some of those states by, so I sat down and created the map that's attached.... I think it definitely portrays our fellow states far differently than the extreme way we've been seeing to date.

Thanks for this picture, Magpie. It definitely helps make things not quite so stark.

I, for one, would be happy to sell Utah and Idaho to El Salvador, or Argentina, or whoever. Take them both, and get Mississsipi for free!
