This is you...

For those Republicans still hanging on to the notion that it’s not the ideas that are wrong, but only the candidates…. This is You:

That is the map of counties voting more Republican than they did in 2004.

To put it in more of a “galaxy with arrow saying ‘You are here…'” perspective:

(Big h/t to Daily Kos for doing this analysis)

    1. … but it’s different (for one thing, Sauguache County is not shaded red!).

      NY Times President Map

      (use the “Voting Shifts” option)

      It’s interactive, so you can look at the shifts at state and county levels. Colorado voted 12% more Democratic in 2008 vs. 2004. Even El Paso County showed a net 16% shift towards more Democratic over the last 4 years!!!

      But don’t get too excited. As a country, we are still considerably ‘redder’ than we were in 92 & 96. (There’s a slider next to the map you can use to compare 2008 to several previous years.) Could this be true?

      Colorado, however, shows a net shift of 8% towards Democratic from 96 to 2008.

      It looks like only in Oklahoma did every single county in one state go for McCain! (Hell, some counties in Oklahoma voted for Gore in 2000!)

      In five of the New England states, every county went blue. Hawaii is the only state in which every island voted blue in 2008!

  1. Alaska & Arizona are the hometown effect so they are not necessarily showing a trend.

    For the rest, it’s 3 very insular parts of the country. The Republican party is the party of lets hide in the past rather than embrace the future – so that does make sense.

      1. This is just continuance of maps developed after the 2004 election.  Where incomes and education go up Dems do better. I have some maps by county of edcuational levels in the US and of the 2004 results.  Those with less education vote Republican.  

        One of my Austin relatives said that there were 15 Obama signs for every McCain. In every red type state with significant educational towns like Florida, Georgia, Texas, (and recently, Wisconsin) are blue islands amidst redness.  

    1. it’s good Southerners who were quite happy to vote for the first Black president, so long as he was a white man from Arkansas. Not so much otherwise.

      1. That’s about the one thing that’s not interesting.  More people voted than ever before – again – therefore the winner would have more votes than last time around’s winner.  The result is a shift in votes toward blue.  It really is that simple.
