I agree with you Alcon.  Maybe we could just refer to blue and red states only when a candidate on the national level consistantly gets 60% or better.  Otherwise it's too close to just label it blue or red.

I would say Utah is a blue state and DC is a red state.

Even with 60%, that's still 40% of the state who didn't vote for that candidate, and I don't think that that 40% will appreciate you alleging that they supported that candidate by calling the state a (red/blue) state.

How about we just forget that terminology? Smiley
