Electoral Vote Predictor 2004: Kerry 252 Bush 286
News from the Votemaster
I entered the semifinal results in the spreadsheet, so it is now available in both Excel and .csv formats.
Here is a county-by-county map of the U.S. showing who won where. From looking at the map, you wouldn't know that almost half the population voted for Kerry. It shows very clearly how Kerry's base is in highly-populated urban areas and Bush's base is more in suburban and rural areas. Another map tomorrow.
For comparison purposes, here is the county map for 2000.
If you are a senior majoring in computer science and are seriously thinking of leaving the country due to the election results, you might be interested in my international English-language masters program in parallel and distributed computer systems. If you are a faculty member in computer science, I would be very grateful if you would go to that Website and download and print the poster (a PDF file) and pin it to a bulletin board where potential students might see it and mention it in any classes you teach to CS seniors. Thank you.
Projected Senate: 44 Democrats, 53 Republicans, 1 independent, 2 tossups
