1932 Electoral Map

As I sit here on Sunday working, reviewing financial statements for companies we own, reading the history of asset classes and how they react during bear markets, I've been thinking about the future of our country. In looking back at the elections the last time we had an economy this distressed (not that we are going to have a depression, but the current situation is actually worse than the 1970's – the most recent economic situation that is this bad – so I had to move backward in time), I found this electoral map that I thought the readers of this blog might like to see.

Whether you are republican, democrat or independent, information is always important.

If history, and current polls, are a guide, we will be singing Hail to the Chief to President Obama.
