Isn't it interesting that in either case - they are rarely successful in substance - but can borrow the gullible minds of a few to occasionally win an election?

Pretty dishonest - if you ask me.

Why do people vote for these liberal clowns?
In other words, repugnicans cannot accept FACTS, no matter how they are presented.

People elect the President, not land masses. The linked maps show where the people are and how they voted.

How is that dishonest?

Greeting to all of you on Veteran's Day...
From the FAQ:
Where are Alaska and Hawaii? Not on the maps. I know. Sorry. There are some technical problems with non-contiguous cartograms that make it difficult to produce nice maps. Frequently asked questions

And, the creator of the maps:

For the ignorant. This map should kill the red state/blue state argument.

And they are safe because they have low rates of minorities. The most unsafe states have high minority populations which have, unfortunately, a high propensity for crime. If one were to be pragmatic one might assume that this is why the whites in those states vote conservative.

How does that kill the red state/blue state argument? Looks to me like a sea of red rural areas, with splotches of blue (mostly urban areas) that turn some states blue.
