"generally vote for"

It's not really correct to associate the views of a population with the views their elected officials represent. For one thing, for at least the last 6 years, "red" and "blue" have only been separated by a handful of votes in many states. Additionally, sometimes (granted, rarely) elected representitives win with less than a majority. Lastly, sometimes there are one-issue voters who may agree with their elected representative on the one important issue might not be in alignment on anything else.

LPOV

I am about to tag this article as having a liberal point of view. It comes across as cheerleading for the blue states, and we should cite information to rebut the pro-blue-state bias. DavidE 13:17, 14 August 2007 (EDT)

Which part are you referring to? The article didn't seem like it was cheerleading to me.
If you were talking about the second line, I removed it completely. It was added by a currently blocked user, and I think it was actually a trolling line that nobody caught until now. The statements are either incorrect, vague, or unverifiable.
Now that I took out that line, does it still have LPOV? Jazzman831 13:58, 14 August 2007 (EDT)
Yes, because it labels their views as "progressive". Looks a bit slanted to me...--Carico 09:32, 22 September 2007 (EDT)
