    I prefer this map-making site. It is easy to click on any state to change possible results from 2008 (the default position).

    What I want to see on this map is for Missouri and Montana to go blue, so that it would look like half the country supported the Democrats.

    As it is, our turf includes quite a few very small states -- Rhode Island, D.C., Delaware, and Vermont for heaven's sake. Meanwhile the Repubs have more than their fair share of the big empty states -- Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming, the Dakotas, and Alaska. So looking at their turf, the Repubs look like the winners.

    •  I can live with them owning the big empty states-- (3+ / 0-)

      just as they own most of the big empty spaces between cities in most of the blue states (I mean the formerly-red Dem states...)   As long as we have the peeps.

      Certainly I do hope we get MO this year, that's where I live.  It's not especially empty though, on the order of WY, UT or the Dakotas.
