Blue vs Red: Time-Lapse Animation Over Decades

Fascinating time-lapse animation of the ebb and flow of red vs blue in US presidential elections over the course of the last century.

Notice especially the rapid spread of blue after 1929, and the rapid transformation of the South after 1964, more or less coincident with the passage of the Civil Rights Act.

The concentration of blue in the coastal states in the last couple of decades is also striking.

See what else you can find.
