The map takes a while to load so be patient. It can be found here. It is the brain child of Princeton's Robert J. Vanderbei. You can see his 2-D version of the map here. The point is that we really aren't Red States and Blue States but surprisingly purple. Maybe - just maybe - Republicans, Democrats and Independents are not so far apart. We seem to be living together in a very civil manner.
As Thanksgiving approaches, I thought perhaps that it would be best to remember like the map above we are not red or blue but as a country, very purple. Well that's my thoughts on it any ways.
