America the Purple

You've probably seen one of those 2000 Election Maps showing the country starkly divided into red (Republican) and blue (Democrat) states. Or perhaps you have seen a more accurate county-by-county map, which gives a more nuanced view, but still makes it seem like everyone in a given county feels the same way.

Now a professor at Princeton has come up with a much more evocative map, in which each county is colored according to their red/blue/green tilt.

I know what you are thinking: Does this mean that SpongeBob SquarePants doesn't get to sponsor a NASCAR race? Have no fear, that's not the case.
