  •  Looking forward to reading this...but a minor quip (1+ / 0-)

    It's hard to quickly interpret the sliding Red Scale in the county maps for Republican performance. Could that be amended? To me, 6-8% doesn't appear to be at a lower performance than 8-10%, or 10-15%. The Blue scale looks perfect.

     Thanks!

    •  Yes this is a problem I'm unfortunately aware of (0+ / 0-)

      I tried a more traditional scale with just shades of red but it also didn't look nearly as neat, but it's hard for me to tell since I'm so used to these colors (they're from a set on the app I used to color the states). When I used the shades of red the overall colors looked neater as a whole but it was really difficult (for me at least) to quickly tell the difference between two adjacent shades, so while this one might be less intuitive it provides a much better contrast.
