For me as a foreigner US politics are highly interesting – and soo different. So perhaps you already knew, why the Republican Party is associated with the color Red and the Democrats are shown as Blue, but it’s news to me (and about 400.000 other viewers). Thanks, vox, for explaining!

“The major party color schemes, and the terms “red state” and “blue state,” are actually a recent phenomenon.”
