Stolen Election?




As Parrot Check so adroitly said, 'Every time I see this map, it reminds me how much 'W' stole the election.'

Then I got comments from readers that said W's 2004 wash of the US was not a Mandate. Look at 1984! What about this map? Does this qualify as mandate? PBS did a speacial about the 1984 Election called, 'Minnesota: The Lonliest State'

Thanks Parrot Check for the inspiration


Comments:
That would be pretty impressive provided you are totally willing to stop thinking. In reality it is actually totally meaningless.

Here are some other electoral maps that are a tad more 'reality based'

Electoral Vote map adjusted for population.

But for the most part the country is still quite a mix.
 
Boo Hoo Hoo - you lost!
 
I wasn't crying, just pointing out the silliness of using that map to prove some sort of mandate.
