re: Now that is a very red map


Has anybody posted a map by congressional districts? I.E. If the whole country followed the proportional electoral vote assignment such as maine uses, what would be the result?

That is amazing right there. 90% of this nation gets no representation in the federal Government.

I live in a Blue county, DAMNIT!

What does that even mean? Land doesn't vote.... Or else the governor of Alaska would always be an Eskimo or Aleut,

and Texas an oilman from the west... Wait... Uhh.

It's also a very irrelevant map.

Every time I see one of the maps, I always wonder why northern Montana has a black hole

Yeah, I hear civilization is on the rise in St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland and New Orleans.

And the culture is top notch...

The house looks to be 233-195 R-D (there are some undecided races) and 24 states went for Romney. Back of the envelope says the result would have been about 281 votes for Romney.

Funny, natives in Alaska are by far the minority but own an incredible amount of private land. They are the largest landholder in the state which gives them enough power to hold both the state and the feds by the balls when it comes to native policy.
