The Colour Purple

It's a cartogram, showing the relative intensity of Republican (red) and Democrat (blue) voting patterns, with various shades of purple used to indicate split voting patterns. I found it here, along with lots of other ways of pictorially representing the results.

But I like this one because it makes it look as if the Republican vote is a fraying but still substantial net of ropes holding the country down.
