Tutorial on how to make a map using QGIS. I'll turn @SenhorRaposa's 2000 Vermont town data into a map showing by how much Gore outran Senator Jeffords (or vice versa) in every town.
Step 1: Download QGIS for your computer, which is available here:…

I'm not one for nostalgia: Election Twitter was never a perfect place free of silly drama and fights. But the events have the past day, where @SocalPopulist and "friends" defamed me by posting fake DMs I never sent, have moved the nonsense to a whole new level.

A thread:

This wasn't the first time someone defamed me using fake Tweets I never sent. That was actually on May 1. 2023, when now-banned @FuckYouGute posted fake DMs suspiciously similar to the ones posted last night. Let me be clear: I never sent any of these DMs.
Naively, I replied.

As you can see, that had the effect of blowing up the defamatory Tweet, racking up 34.1K impressions in 2 hours.

For the doubters out there, the initial Tweet has since been deleted, but my response still lives on:

Republican @KristyforNY Marmorato flipped an East Bronx NYC City Council seat tonight. The precinct winner map.

She cleaned up in traditionally Italian-American areas like Country Club and Throggs Neck, and kept margins down in the more Hispanic parts, too.

@PatrickRuffini Image
Meanwhile, in Queens, incumbent Republican City Councilwoman @VickieforNYC Paladino easily won her rematch against @TonyAvella by about 20 points. Paladino won almost every precinct in the process.

Thanks to @BenJ_Rosenblatt for the precinct consolidation list.

VA Beach is one of the few VA localities that reports election day checkins. A gif of VA Beach turnout as of about 9AM (EV + ED). Citywide, 16.8% of RVs have voted - about 34% of the 2021 vote.

It appears relative turnout is generally higher in Youngkin-voting areas - but this pattern definitely isn't uniform.
The static maps:

No sooner do I post this than we get a Noon update. Updated GIF:

Next update should be around 3PM

The U.S. Census Bureau finally released the 2020 Census ancestry and racial subgroup data on Thursday. More on this to follow in this thread.

My interactive map of the Top Ancestry or Racial or Hispanic subgroup in every US census tract is now live:…
Like Boston, Greater Philadelphia's top AHR is largely Irish. And like in Boston, the Irishness fades the further you get from the city center. Pennsylvania (German) Dutch Country - and arguably the Midwest - starts in the PA exurbs. Image
Finally (for now) Greater Atlanta is CSA #10. Since Census didn't separately report those who self-reported themselves as American, English is now tops in a majority of tracts. African-American is next.

Some Asian groups are tops in N Fulton/W Gwinnett/S Forsyth County suburbs. Image

Welcome to the weekend of never-ending town population change maps!

Census released its 2022 incorporated placepop estimates on Thursday, so here comes a cartographic cavalcade.

First, the nationwide 2020-22, 2020-21 and 2021-22 town pop change gif. S & W generally gained.

Census released its 2022 incorporated place population estimates. I now have an interactive version of this map. The default map is 2020-22 PCT Change. Click the Menu button to toggle between PCT or Numerical change and the years you want to see.…
Be patient - I simplified the shp, but it still might take long to load. And please let me know of any errors. This isn't the easiest map to make.
