On the night of the 2000 presidential election, Americans watched on television as polling results divided the nation's map into red and blue states. Since then the color divide has become symbolic of a culture war that thrives on stereotypes--pickup-driving red-state Republicans who vote based on God, guns, and gays; and elitist blue-state Democrats woefully out of touch with heartland values. With wit and prodigious number crunching, Andrew Gelman debunks these and other political myths. This expanded edition includes new data and easy-to-read graphics explaining the 2008 election. Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State is a must-read for anyone seeking to make sense of today's fractured political landscape.abortion, 117, 118, 124, 127, 128, 213, 218, 219 Abramowitz, Alan, 130, 200, 218 , 223, 224 Abrams, Samuel, 199, 218 Abramson, Paul, 204 academic work, slowness of, 202 Accra index of cost of living, 209 Achen, Christopher, 222 Adams, James, 228 aerospace, political ... in U.S., 33 assimilation effect, 228 atheists, 76, 210 Austin, Texas, 12, 13 availability bias, 36a€“37, 205 second-order, 206 averageanbsp;...
