    It didn't. It became the Green Party. Anywho, shouldn't this go into the current politics thread?

    Just a generic Democratic landslide, with the Democrat doing especially well in the Rust Belt.

    Likewise, here's a GOP landslide in New England. every state goes Republican, and Massachusetts and Rhode Island are the only close ones. this came out noticeably better than my last attempt at creating a county map with MS Paint, for some reason.

    Really cool idea. So sad that Kasich fails to carry Ohio though.

    Nice map. But I can't see a Republican winning Vermont even in their best case/landslide scenario. Unless it is a historical map.
    In 2016, Clinton won it with larger margin than Illinois, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Washington and Oregon. It was 6th most Democratic state. In 2012, it was second most D state (after Hawaii).
    A lot of things changed since it was a red state.

    Kindly refrain from using "retarded" unless you are discussing a method of bombing or firefighting.

    The biggest possible R landslide IMO. Yellow states are debatable.

    Or engines. Or are using it for its old definition, "to slow something down."

    Okay. We can take that a reasonable usage.

    Its been so long since I had a car with a non electronic, computer controlled system I forgot the whole "retard the spark" thing.

    Also, the biggest possible D landslide. Again, yellow states are debatable.

    If current trends continue (which is definitely not guaranteed), it should become substantially more competitive in the somewhat near future.

    This map was more of a Baker vs. Manchin kind of realignment map though.

    If Democrats are winning Mississippi they are also winning Missouri

    A closer 1984. Mondale does better in the final weeks of the campaign and his attacks stick a little better in the debates. As a result, he ends up winning a 6 percent swing in his favor. Still a massive loss electorally, but next to McGovern 1972 it looks almost like a 2000 repeat by comparison (there are 9 states he loses by less than ten points in this timeline), and in terms of the popular vote, Mondale's defeat falls to just barely below average

    No. The word has undergone enough semantic shift that it's no longer euphemistic but offensive in its own right.

    I'm curious if TR's Progressive Party stays Would the Kennedy's be part of this Party?
