The New York Times Maps Electoral Shifts

NY Times (screencap): Republican gains More good stuff from the New York Times: a slideshow showing the shift in support for presidential candidates since 2004, based on exit polls and the results. Five of the slides show county-by-county voting shifts; at right, counties where the Republican vote went up compared to 2004. Arizona, Alaska — the candidates’ home states — and Arkansas and Appalachia. I have a bad feeling about those last two. Via Andrew Sullivan.
