Still Very Red
Look at this map. The map shows all 50 states, county-by-county.
Red is Republican. Blue is Democrat.
At first glance you might be thinking you are looking at a map showing the results of the 2000 or the 2004 election. But you're not.
You're looking at a map showing the results of the 2008 presidential election. Red counties voted for John McCain. Blue counties votes for Barack Obama.
Look at it. America is still a red country. It's overwhelmingly red.
There's a message here for Barack Obama: More of America is red than blue. Nearly half the people voted against you, Mr. President-Elect. This is still a center-right country.
Don't forget it.
