Call me a nerd, a poly sci junkie, or even an outright loser… but THIS has got to be the greatest electoral model of the 2012 election I have seen.
Compare 2008 to 2012. If you had been living on Mars for the past 2 days and you only had looked at this model you would have thought Romney won in a landslide.
Clearly, Governor Romney did no such thing. Yet, more Americans moved to the right. However Obama’s victory shows that where it mattered, voters turned more democratic than they had in 2008.
You’ll also notice that in the “Solid South” voters turned more democratic.
I hope you are as entertained by this as I was.
