Long Term Problems for the GOP: Maps of College Grads, Independents, and Moderates

At the Washington Independent, Aaron Wiener has made a bunch of electoral college maps that show how the candidates would have done if only one particular demographic group had voted. First, registered independents:

With the exceptions of Florida and Indiana, this looks exactly like the actual 2008 map. As I’ll discuss tomorrow, you can’t really win anymore without college graduates. Demonizing educated people who like science and stuff might not be the best electoral strategy (it’s not too good for the country either….).
