Worse Than it Looks

11 Nov 2004 /

I noticed a few days ago that a map of the recent election results shows Democratic voters relegated to the fringes of the country.

It turns out that if you look at an election map by county rather than by state, the situation becomes even more extreme, and even the blue (Democratic) states turn mostly red.

A coworker of mine refers to Republicans, somewhat derisively, as “Bible Belt” voters.

If that’s true, then — as you can see from the map — the Bible Belt now runs from the Hudson River to the Hollywood Freeway.
