One State, Two States, Red States, Blue States

Sibilous led me to's Map of the Fundraising US. This map shows how various areas of the US send their dollars to Republicans and Democrats for this year's Presidential election. A surprise: Whereas northern cities like Boston, New York, & Chicago are bastions of Democratic economic support, Cincinnati's dollars lean the furthest Republican -- outpacing Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta.

The map serves as a great reminder to Democrats of just how effective the Republican party is at fundraising.

One of the creepier features of is Neighbor Search, a tool you can use to get names, addresses, occupations, and donation amounts for people living in a particular geography. In short, it takes information that your neighbors may have thought to be private, and airs it out for all to see.
