  •  Wow, what a lot of work. (4+ / 0-)

    I am really surprised, and disappointed, to see all of the pink, orange, red in the northeast.  
    Looks like there is a lot of ground work and candidate recruiting to do.

    •  It probably took less than you might think (5+ / 0-)

      I was able to copy and paste a lot of the data to excel to organize and manipulate it, thankfully.

      Regarding the red in those states though, it's to mark it as more Republican than the state itself, not the nation as a whole.  In fact, in some of those states like Vermont or New York the first few shades on the red side would have actually been Democratic on average from 2004 to 2010.  It's more to give you an idea of which parts of a deep blue state like Vermont are more Republican or Democratic than the whole state, since just looking at Obama's 2008 numbers can make it harder to appreciate the differences.
