Over 1000 of you have come to look at these graphs, but I still have too little feedback. Please tell me what you think - thanks!

To make sense of any of this you must understand the Electoral College.

More information in my diary entries - add that diary to your hotlist if this sort of thing interests you, I'll be doing more up to and during election night. I have a plan for updating this graph during election night as states are called by the networks.
