Geocoding the TARP Vote: White vs Gold States

Here is a quick cut at geocoding Monday’s House vote on the TARP plan. The following color-coded map of the U.S. shows each state’s relative "Nay-isness" or "Yea-ishness", with pure white meaning the state’s representatives voted all "Nay", while pure gold means said state came down all "Yea".

There is also a tab on the chart for Dem/Rep. The more blue a state is the higher the concentration of House Democrats, and the more white then the higher the concentration of Republicans. (And no, I don’t get to pick the colors.)

[Update] I initially had the calculations correct here, but the color scale backwards. It’s now fixed. Late night geocoding ….
