2004 Election Map by County

On the eve before the 2008 elections, I thought I’d post a picture I saved from the last election in 2004.  It’s hard to believe the likely difference between this almost completely red map and the map that is likely going to be drawn tomorrow.

It’s a good reminder of the hubris of Republican partisans after the 2004 elections, and a reminder to Democratic partisans of how quickly sentiment can shift.  The track record for parties that control both houses of Congress and the Presidency is exceptionally poor.

I’m hoping we won’t repeat past mistakes… but not counting on it.

  1. Hate to break it to you, but the map will look fairly similar tomorrow. Republicans almost always win by acreage. On the other hand, I am guessing Obama will have it tomorrow. Even Biden said that Pennsylvania, which looks like it will go to Obama, is Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between.
