RobS- Is there a reason to not have a 'See Also' section? Red State and Blue State are intrinsically related terms. It makes sense to connect them. --Brainwalker 02:30, 20 May 2007 (EDT)

I have to say that I suspect that a lot of this article is an oversimplification. We cannot make an oversimplifying statement that voters in a state tend one direction when 52% of a state vote Republican (the information here would hardly apply to Ohio, for instance.) The same goes for some states that would be "blue". For instance, Illinois votes Democrat in elections because of Chicago, but there are many conservative voters in the Southern part.

How about the fact that VNS and others had the GOP as Blue and The Dems as Red until very recently; the switch was made obviously because of the jokes that were made how appropriate "Red state" was for liberalism and Democrats. I personally believe this is one sophisisticated oxymoronic line of garbage by the same "mainstream" "opinion makers" that we should not bite into. My personal sentiments are, delete both entries entirely, or point out the facts of history, and why it was changed. RobS 14:02, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

Either course of action would be fine with me. DanH 14:07, 5 June 2007 (EDT)

We need somebody to search out Red State/Blue State, perhaps using Voter News Network as a key search term as well. I beleive it happened sometime in the 1990s, probably 92 or 96. Reagan & Bush, according to all media counts, won by carrying "blue states'. RobS 14:38, 5 June 2007 (EDT)
