Election maps


A representation of the way the American vote went  in 2004 and 2008 using a cartogram, a map in which the sizes of states are rescaled according to their population. Interesting indeed

Here is a cartogram by county. “One way to improve the map and reveal more nuance in the vote is to use not just two colors, red and blue, but to use red, blue, and shades of purple in between to indicate percentages of votes”
