    This is amazing! Great work! Last year I wrote a paper for my American history class where I advocated switching to a voting system like this.

    Realistically, if it was Humphrey vs. Wallace with no third parties and no GOP nominee, I think Humphrey would sweep nearly everything outside the Deep South. Maybe Wallace would win Idaho or Michigan but beyond that he'd be absolutely crushed. Humphrey would likely win many very solidly Republican areas - I could see him cracking 60% in the Plains states since Wallace has no real appeal there.

    How does the Socialist Workers Party win in the South?

    I probably gave them a bit too much of the South, but mainly through mobilizing the black vote, but also through poor whites. I'm reading Camejo's memoir right now and he and the SWP were very active in Malcolm X and King's circles. In a world where the SWP somehow became one of the two major parties (no idea on the POD or history leading up to this, it was just a spur of the moment idea I had), I could see it.

    Some of those states are more believable than others.

    I made a county map for this, and I have to say it's one of the most aesthetically pleasing ones I've ever made.

    Maryland is a part of the South, at least in my opinion. during the Solid South it almost always voted Democratic, even though it was always by substantially less than the Deepest parts of the South. in the original map, I realize I accidentally colored Maryland blue, but I meant to give it to Clinton.

    Maryland also is the birthplace of the American Catholic Church, so it’s had a high percentage of Catholics who supported the Democrats.

    I came up with the strangest 2016 electoral map I think could have possibly occurred with the candidates we had in OTL.

    General idea is Clinton boosts her performance in the Sun Belt states and manages to pick up traditionally Republican strongholds in the South and Southwest. Trump does better with the WWC in the Midwest and rural New England, which leads to him picking up Minnesota, New Hampshire and Maine. And McMullin wins Utah.

    I was somewhat conflicted about who to have win Florida (and thus the election) on this map, but I figured that, given Clinton generally did better in the Sun Belt, it would make the most sense for her to win Florida as well.

    Was putting Dr. in parentheses intentional? XD

    If you are an anti-vaxxer, you don’t deserve to be called doctor

    Yes, because this is a uniform swing from 2004. I decided to use that as a starting point because it allows for more diversity in the shadings, whereas if I applied this swing to 2016 there would be a massive blob of R>90% counties and it wouldn't look as appealing.
