The Map The Main Stream Media Will Never Televise or Print

I love maps. I could not find an election map that accurately illustrates the results so far of the primary season so I made my own.
I wish I had the photoshop skills to combine text from a couple of Great OP's to go with the map but will insert the links from yesterday's threads by Attorney in Texas and Kristopher.
Here goes.....

5. There is a small legend at the top that shows votes shown in percentages.

The point is the MSM believes a state such as Missouri that was won by .2% is a WIN but it isn't, it is a tie.

7. I don't understand what I'm looking at here.

 

For a Democratic statistician, this might mean something, but for low-information voters like me, it's just a color-coded map of the United States. So what?

9. YES! Much better - it's like showing the red state/blue state divisions -

 

You look at the map and you can see how the primary vote was split, and by how much. Cheers.
