Mapping Out the US — Pick Your Favorite Quadrant
Below the fold is an interesting graph I found on Kevin Drum’s Washington Monthly site. The graph plots out social and economic attitudes in the US, from liberal to conservative, and places each of the 48 continental states on the graph accordingly. It’s interesting to ask yourself whether you consider yourself a liberal or a conservative on these two subjects, and then look and see the states where you’d feel most at home.
Call the top left quad A, the top right one B, the bottom left one C, and the bottom right one D. Where did you wind up, with respect to your social/economic attitudes? A, B, C, or D? And did it match the states you’d want to live in, if you had your druthers?
