Map of US Presidential Election 2004 by County
HobbsOnline points to a link which has the results of the United States Presidential Election 2004 BY COUNTY. That map makes it clear that the broad heartland of America voted for Bush and that even in some of the States won by Kerry, Bush still won the majority of counties, while Kerry took the metropolitan areas, with the State of California being a good example.
Update, November 12, 2004:
In the comments section to this post, attorney Anthony Cerminaro of Bizz Bang Buzz points out a clearly better county map of the 2004 Presidential election, showing America not to be made up of “red” or “blue” opposing Democrats and Republicans but of more merging “purple” Americans. See his blog for the links.
Update, November 15, 2004:
And yet another set of maps, via Davos Newbies:
See “Maps and cartograms of the 2004 US presidential election results”
by Michael Gastner, Cosma Shalizi, and Mark Newman at the University of Michigan
which show the United States callibrated not for the geographic size of the States but by their population.
