Primary maps and Purple America

September 30th, 2008, 10:00am by Sam Wang


(From Bob Vanderbei, chair of Operations Research and Finance. -Sam)
The primaries are well behind us but I thought I might point out that I’ve made some “Purple Primary” maps. You can check them out here. Of course, in the primaries, the races were intra-party. Hence, purpality is only a measure of voter turnout, which depends on many things, perhaps mainly the closeness of the intra-party race. Nonetheless, you might find the maps interesting. I’ll make a new Purple America map as soon as possible after the election.
