The Color Purple

This is just a quick observation about the great American melting pot. I don’t have time to do a bunch of research to understand the full historical context, but as I watched the Iowa caucus results come in and saw the leading two candidates separated by only eight votes, I was reminded of how evenly divided the last democratic primary was, and of course the 2000 general election. Here are those numbers:

Seems that in addition to us having blue states and red states (and of course there are both Reps and Dems in each state), that there are also nearly equally divided shades of red and blue.

In your opinion, is that a healthy America or not? Your thoughts?
