Map of 2000 Election by Counties

Here is a map of the 2000 election in terms of who won which county. As can be seen, Bush won the vast majority of counties, in fact, virtually all of them except the ones where a lot of people live. Even in solid blue states like New York and California, most of the counties went for Bush. Although it is not discussed much, in 2000 (and probably 2004), the country is polarized into the red rural, conservative, religious counties and the blue urban, liberal, secular counties. Alaska is white because no county data is available.
