Election Atlas for political junkies

Blogger Dave Leip created this colorful elections atlas with Presidential election information going back to 1789.  According to the website: “Dave Leip’s Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections was started as a paper hobby after the 1992 Presidential Election. I was 22 and attending graduate school at MIT. I made a photocopy of a U.S. map (with county boundaries) from one of the libraries and filled in counties with colored pen according to the winner. There were only two percentage points – above 45% and below 45%. I used the data for Perot, Clinton, and Bush that was published in the 1993 World Almanac and Book of Facts (there were no minor party data).”    The atlas also has information on Senate and gubernatorial elections as well.  Check the website out!!
