You are comparing electoral map to civil war map?

Lets look at popular vote map. Tells a different story. Just goes to show someone( like the OP) can manipulate data to serve a narrow minded agenda.

The South still holds to old beliefs and it's not just race but the fact the South is also the bible belt. Extreme bigotry. I think about leaving but then I think leaving want help me make it change.

The original map comparison works better in this example. If you wanted to use your map, a breakdown of popular vote by county, you'd have to compare it to something like slavery per capita at the county (or similar) level.

Yep

People just want to move on and find a way to unite people.

Why the need to try and make a model fit an agenda to associate the civil war to American votes in 2012?
