1. the 3rd one, especially, blows away the myth of "middle right country"

very little pure red; quite a lot of pure blue!

2. Love that finger of blue starting up the Rockies

I guess leaving lefty magazines in waiting rooms and laundromats has finally had an effect. Now we need to work on Wyoming and Montana.

4. NJ has been at the cannolis.

I love those things. The maps, that is, not the cannolis. But I do like cannolis too. Not sure how I got OT so quickly.

7. The analysis about the maps is encouraging too

That wide swath of red the repubs brag about is mostly rural..tumbleweeds/snakes & cows...few people

8. There was a post on Sullivan about this

and the fact that Democrats own areas with high population density. Where there are lots of people, Democrats command the ground, generally speaking. Where there are very few people, Repigs do very well.
