America’s wide-open spaces are mostly red, but places where people live are mostly blue
A map of the United States colored red in areas where Republican John McCain prevailed in the November election and blue in areas that Democrat Barack Obama carried is misleading.
The map is mostly red (as we see HERE).
But a new analysis of the election results shows that Obama carried 55.6 percent (or 242 out of 435) of the nation’s congressional districts.
In other words, the red areas have more cows and sheep and rocks and stuff while the blue areas have more people.
