I don't know, I didn't post it. Interesting historical context? That's what I thought of it. 

Quoting jcrew6:

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



Quoting krysstizzle:

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.

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.

This isn't a new trend. It's coming that the south is republican and the north/northeast is democrat

You find it interesting that someone can take one portion )and not complete data ) to serve their agenda? I find it narrow minded.

Not complete how? I find the comparison of state electoral votes and states that had slavery to be a mildly interesting comparsion. 

And what agenda? It's not a secret that the southern states are generally conservative and Republican. It's not like it's a conspiracy, it just is what it is.

And she apparently does not want to explain her point.

All the votes in the blue states...the majority of the blue counties..had big cities in them. Most counties in ALL of the states were red. Unfortunately, the "cities" with the larger populations decided and of course were blue...how much of that is minority? Racist? Sure as hell could be.
