...interesting link my boyfriend sent me. it's a couple permutations of the electoral map, geography versus population. looking at the population cartograph weighted for proportion in each area is a little more encouraging than looking at a state map, but the swaths of red (not even purple...RED) through mid-america and the south are still rather disconcerting to me. also...it's hard for me to take much hope out of things statistical, i get hung up on the ideological and the tactical. still...it was a neat thing to take a look at.
