graphical representation of the presidential election
I hope that there is displayed below a graphic displaying states that would be anywhere near in play that have been called in tonight's presidential election. It's possible that permissions are wrong and that I'm seeing it but nobody else is. Let me know in the comments if this is even less intelligible than I expect. Note that the spirit is the same as in the earlier post; a simple count of electoral votes at any point in the middle of the evening is indicative more of which states' polls closed early than of an actual clear lead by one candidate or the other. In this display, if you start seeing red incursions in the blue territory or vice versa, that's your signal that one candidate or the other has done something clearly demonstrative of a likely electoral college win.
