hey Mr. Green, I hope you have a good Memorial Day. I hope you are tipped back with your feet on the deck rail, savoring a cool libation. Best regards. brobro

This is a really badly put-together map. Absolute numbers, spread evenly across the state? That tells us less than nothing.

To be fair, those States have a lot more populace. and as sevenwheel noted, spread out over the entire State. That gives Texas a greater advantage, because it is so large.

It also does not offer caused of unemployment rates. One thing I noted during the 2011 primary, was when Perry was challenged about the high unemployment rate of TX, despite the job growth rate. He did not know to challenge the criticism by pointing out, that the people of Democratic-heavy States keep emigrating to TX looking for work. Without this mass migration, Texas' unemployment rate would have been a glittering 2.9%.

So, it's a nice pretty picture, here, but it means little without more info. Besides, the lights should have been Red and Blue, as well as being based on percentages, instead of raw numbers. I dunno, maybe those were percentages. Not enough info, regardless. It's like polls; You gotta look at the tabs, not the headlines.

Presumably distributed across the mass of the states. Otherwise there are a lot of unemployed people wandering the deserts of California ...
