The ten states of the United States

Robert David Sullivan, over at MassINC, does really interesting stuff
with political geography.  A while back, you might have seen his
map that divided the country into ten different geographic regions
(some non-contiguous), to describe the state of the electorate.  He’s
updated it to take account of the latest election results and written
an article about how the election returns show the country still very
much in a state of flux
.  If the following piques your attention, then read the whole thing:

George W. Bush can now claim a clear victory in
the popular vote for president, thanks in large part to people
in and around New York City. But the president got no re-election
mandate from the citizens of Savannah, Ga.
