Election Demographics by Party Affiliation

Breakdown by State

This graphic is commonly seen as evidence that "the United States is majority conservative". Red areas show majority Republican areas, while blue areas show majority Democratic areas.

Breakdown by Population

However, when we draw the map using squares that are sized by equal population, we get the following map:


Notice that this map shows a distinctly different plurality of political affiliation for the United States.

The political affiliation based on population has a Democratic/Progressive tilt, the map is much more blue.

The take-away from comparing these two maps is that "Dirt doesn't vote!"

In other words, large areas of the United States are sparsely populated, yet seem to dominate the map of political demographics. When the map is adjusted to show population proportionately, the map becomes MUCH more blue!

Grand County

Finally, let's look at the political affiliation of registered voters in Grand County.

Is Grand County really majority Republican?
Not really - it is majority Democrat and Unaffiliated Voters!

Think about that the next time someone tells you that Grand County is a Republican stronghold.
