U.S. Presidential Politics Resources

- October 8th, 2012

If you’re looking for patterns in U.S. presidential elections the National Atlas of the United States offers printable PDFs going back to Washington’s first election, along with a whole lot of other cool maps on topics from geology to biology. But my favourite resource remains the University of Richmond’s “Voting America” project, with time-lapse presidential election results from the emergence of a firm party system in 1840 to the present by state, county or 500 voters.

Parenthetically I wish someone would do the latter for Canada. The data is surely available and so now of course is sufficient desktop computing power to make this a dream project for some aspiring political scientist.
