Breakdown of the 109th House of Representatives by Party
This map shows the party division in the 109th House (2005-2007). For elections, a 10% difference is huge, but for the House delegations it is very small. States that are dark blue have a House delegation in which the percentage of Democrats is at least 30% more than the percentage of Republicans. This means a split of at least 65% to 35%. Light blue means a Democratic advantage of 15-30%, meaning at least 57.5% Democratic. White with a blue border means a Democratic majority, but under 57.5%. The precise reverse holds for the red states.
