Measuring the Vote

A group of professors from the University of Michigan has posted an interesting series of maps regarding the 2004 presidential election. In addition to the state and county breakdowns that have been widely reported, they offer the following maps:

• results on a population cartogram where the states have been scaled according to their population.




• results by county on a population cartogram



Note the weight of Travis County’s population compared with the rest of Texas. Also note that Long Island is as big as Montana, Wyoming, and the Dakotas combined.

I'm glad to see this -- I thought that was the obvious problem with the other red and blue maps, as well as the purple ones.

P.S. Don't say anything, but Florida sure looks funny!
