Election Results by County.

This is a map of the election results by county. Red countys were won by Bush, blue ones by Kerry, and the grey ones have not yet finished reporting. If you go by square-mileage, Bush won almost five times as much -- 2.51 million as compared with 511,700. See a larger image here.

This is a bit weird but anyway..I just read your article in the weekly standard. It was great, and encouraging as I myself an outnumbered conservative amongst some of my classmates. Although I am a little more fortunate then you are ( I'm from Indiana:O) Still your bit about the election folder inspired me to be more informed about current events, so I can confront the left wing in a more prepared manner. Thanks for the inspiration. Sorry this kinda longwinded,Abigail

Hi Republican Dan:

I'm an occasional stopper-by of your blog from the reddest state in the union, Utah. Anyway, just wanted to point out that America-hater Michael Moore has quite a different map up, dividing North America into "The United States of Canada" and "Jesusland."

Yeah, he's a patriot.

Despite some significant differences with him, I'm glad Bush won, though I'm a bit puzzled as to why the county-by-county map is treated by Republicans as some sort of vindication. (I realize that might not be your purpose in posting it, but I've seen a fair amount of that on the web.)

All it demonstrates is that people who live in sparsely populated areas seem to be disproportionately in favor of Bush. Which is an interesting fact, but I don't think it says a whole lot beyond that, unless one wants to make the case that the votes of people in rural areas should count more than those of people in urban and suburban areas. (They do already by virtue of the electoral college's skew toward the low-density states of the farm belt and the Rocky Mountains, but still.)

My vote for Bush was counted in one of the bluest of the blue areas of the map.

Boy, am I looking at this map incorrectly or is my home state of Nebraska one of precisely two states to go completely, 100%, no-doubt-about-it, county-by-county gaga for President Bush?
