A reader directed us to a “creative commons” website created by a University of Michigan Prof who has created a series of red and blue maps which explain in vivid color why Obama won the election.
Mark Newman, Department of Physics and Center for the Study of Complex Systems, University of Michigan shows us why acreage doesn’t really matter when it comes to the electoral college.
ROMNEY won the acreage, but OBAMA got the votes in the right places to win.
This map will probably not do much to unite the country or create a lovefest between the Repubs and Dems, but it is an interesting look at politics from the eye of a Physicist.
