A number of sites have featured a hypothetical electoral mapentitled “This Is What the 2008 Electoral Map Would Look Like if the Election Were Decided by 18-29 Year Olds.” Needless to say, it’s a very blue map.
I spent the weekend poring over the CNN exit pollsfrom last Tuesday’s election and converting the state-by-state data for a number of demographics into my own hypothetical electoral maps.
The result is a set of maps that visualize the outcome of an election decided exclusively by the following age groups, genders, income groups, political affiliations, etc.:
Voters age 65 and older:
