From Andrew Sullivan: county and state level cartograms for the presidential election.

It’s a good example of the effect of the Electoral College, which amplifies a comfortable-but-close popular vote total into a 365-173 Electoral College landslide.

Interesting how completely the third parties were a sideshow this year.  CNN didn’t even bother to include them in its charts.  Nader, Barr, and two others all together got 1.1% of the vote.  It’d be interesting to know if this was mostly in states where it didn’t matter– if people avoided the fringe parties in battleground states.
