What if you had, "If the Election were decided by Klan members", quickly followed by, "If the Election were decided solely by those who have attained Grand Dragon status in the Klan".

The combined map for rich, old, male, white farts is even scarier!

I knocked on the doors of 250 of these white people in Morgan County (look it up for it's reputation) and called another 580to ask them to vote for for Obama. We squeaked through and became a blue state so I'm just as happy as can be about that. We encouraged a lot of folks to vote early, gave directions to polling places, and provided rides if needed. If feels really good for our side to win an election. I don't feel that I've wasted my money or time like I have in the past two election cycles. I'm not happy about Daniels though.

Great, as if I didn't already have /enough/ to be ashamed about by being white. Well, at least my state stays blue almost all the way through -- it gets purple at its worst.

The story in Wisconsin is pretty interesting regarding Obama. In 2000 Al Gore won our state by 10,000 votes, or 1 vote per ward. In 2004 John Kerry doubled that margin to two votes per ward.

This year very red parts of the state turned out for Obama. Oddly, the highest populated area of the state stayed red. This is the area that has been hit hardest by automotive company lay-offs. The mostly densely populated areas of Milwaukee are the exception and like other urban areas of the country, have always been blue.

In the maps you've shown Wisconsin was blue in every statistic except that it tied in over 65 voters.

Comrade Kevin: If you drew up a map of "If the Election were decided by Klan members", you would pretty much only have a map of the Appalachian mountains, I think!

GETkristiLOVE: Yes! And stinkier, too!

Liberality: Good work! I am glad you hard work paid off.

chaos4700: I don't think we have to be ashamed - just aware of the issue. :o)

Jess Wundrun: Cheeseheads unite! It was close in Missouri too, but Obama lost. (I didn't draw the map, the guy just went by final results per state.)

dguzman: Yes, it is - kind of.
