Quick, in how many states did one presidential candidate get the majority vote in every county?
Alaska and Hawaii were gimme's for their candidates. The third? Oklahoma, 100% for McCain.
The real message of that map is that the culture war in America is between the city folk and the country folk. In almost every state dominantly red with a few dots of blue, the blue is the cities. Want to know where Dallas, Houston, San Antonion, and Austin are? They are 4 of the 5 blue dots off the Mexican border in Texas. Upstate New York is red, so is the middle of Pennsylvania, and all the eastern, citiless borders of the otherwise solid blue west coast cities.
