I'm shocked that Texas is considered politically Competitive. It's been solid Republican for decades (that's been my experience, anyway).

Yeah, and Oklahoma "leaning Democrat"? It's been one of the stalwart GOP states of the last 20+ years. Oklahoma was the only state where every single county went McCain in the last Presidential election (as did Alaska, but they don't actually have counties there).

What shreds of credibility Gallup still has is now shredded even further by those BS maps.

Those are basically just visual propaganda tools and are pretty insulting to anyone who isn't easily distracted by pretty colors.

I was wondering about that. Isn't a geographical depiction entirely misleading? Wouldn't a giant rural splotch of one colour or the other be actually overshadowed by an urban dot of the other colour representing the millions of a major population centre?

That reminds me of an election a while back where the Eagle Forum website broke the results down into square miles to show how dominant the Republican party was.
