There is a useful (and easy to use) electoral map on John Edward’s web site. It’s worth a look. Handy. Be sure to click on the bar that says "View Electoral Trends", just below the map. You get a clear look (color coded) which states have voted Democrat or Republican in the last three presidential elections; then move your mouse on individual states for some useful stats. For example, if you place your mouse on New Mexico you will see that it has 5 electoral votes and also that it has voted Democratic since 1988 and that Gore won the state by 366 votes in 2000, i.e., a margin of 0.13%.
