(Created and posted by Jeff Culver on BoingBoing.net) “I was thinking today about how the ‘red v. blue’ states graphic is really misleading considering the slim margins that the candidates won some of those states by, so I sat down and created the map that’s attached. In the dozens of hours I’ve been watching the news I haven’t seen one like it, but thought that you and the BoingBoing readers might find it interesting. I think it definitely portrays our fellow states far differently than the extreme way we’ve been seeing to date.”
