Amazon Election Heat Map 2012

August 24, 2012


Here at Politix we love putting information on maps, and it turns out Amazon does too.

Amazon has introduced a slick lil’ map showing the most popular conservative and liberal book sales by state. That’d be “red” and “blue” respectively, but then you knew that. Unfortunately, there’s no “white” for all you centrists out there, which we agree would be a nice way of representing all the colors of the stars and stripes.

Conservative books dominate in sales nationwide as you can see, and for whatever reason. Popular titles on the red side of the divide include a novel by Ayn Rand and an (unflattering) Obama biography; for blue readers, a tome detailing economic inequality tops the list, not surprisingly.

So, check it out.
