    Another QGIS map! Again, since this is the resource thread, I'm happy to provide files for people who would like to try to make one of these themselves!

    So, here is a map of the 2016 Democratic Presidential Primary between Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. With states not only being different in whether they do primaries or caucuses but in how they they do these results, I did my best to make the most complete map that displays each state in the way it is done best, as well as US territories (sorry Democrats Abroad, the world map didn't work out). I hope you all enjoy! PNG is here to download on deviantart.

    Thank you so much, and all I can say is if you want to make maps like mine (which I'm not saying they're super good or anything), just make maps a lot to practice and it's not so hard. :happyblush

    I continue to wonder why Salvini hasn't pulled the plug on this govt and force new elections that world produce a Lega-Forza majority - I guess Di Maio is that much of a willing idiot. For reference, M5S won 4/5 Deputies seats here in 2018 and 1/2 senate seats. The right got left with the pity scraps.

    Well, I think you always have to take regional elections with a pinch of salt; the 2018 general election had a turnout of 75.25%, whereas the 2019 regional election was 53.12% (a decrease of 22.13%). This means that a large amount of voters decided not to vote, could possibly be the fact that local elections are usually not seen as important as the general, as such a turnout like this will most likely be a plurality of people who want change (with a small minority fighting for the status quo, which could actually be preferred).

    Another problem is that I am sure that M5S would not agree to another coalition with Lega if there was an early election, which might be vital as Forza seems to be dying slowly and something produced could surprise many people, 5 star always outperforms opinion polling on the national level.

    Guess who's back! This time I've brought a map of the 2008 Democratic Primary, which was perhaps the most contentious in modern Democratic Primary history in its sheer narrowness of result; the contest was decided down to the wire and to this day there are Democratic Party voters bitter over the result. A clash between the titans of Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama, the primary showed party divides along lines of race, class, and urbanism that foreshadowed developments to come even as the party remained relatively unified following the primary in the 2008 Presidential election. It's a primary that may serve, along with 2016's, as a good reference for what may lay before us in the 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary. PNG version here
