Might be interesting to repost this map in November after the electoral map gets filled in.

I don't think the data would work: these aren't unemployment rates.

So, the analogy is to something like those maps they include in atlases that place a dot everywhere so much, say, wheat is produced. It tells you where people grow wheat, but not how they're doing at that.

Same thing here: most of the states that are bright are that way because they have both a lot of unemployed people. Is that because they have a lot of population to begin with, or because their local situation is bad?
