America looks great in blue

US states by population

This map shows the US states sized proportional to their populations. Blue states voted for Obama, red states for McCain.

In some of the blue states Obama only got a few thousand votes more than McCain (like in NC) but all the electoral votes of those states go towards the candidate who carries the state.

UPDATE 11/10: If you like the new color scheme for the USA, check out this map by the NY Times. (Flash)
