2008 Presidential Election Maps


Since I'm a giant nerd, I always seek out election result maps by county - I'm really intrigued by outcome break-downs at that level because it's interesting to see how a few key areas can drive an entire state. Cartograms are even more fun, as they really give you a better sense of population and overall stake than straight, scaled results maps. So, when I was Googling "election 2008 county map" last night, I was delighted to find all the information, maps, and cartograms on this site:

2008 Election Results Maps

It's worth a quick peruse, and if you're not familiar with cartograms, those are explained on the page also. Enjoy!

I'd never heard of cartograms, but they really do give a more practical perspective. Interesting!
