This is Part 3 of my political typology for US Politics, which combines my analysis of the current statuses of the Democratic and Republican parties into one national model.
Part 1 was The 4 Types of Democrats:
Part 2 was The 4 Types of Republicans.
Each state contains multiple Democratic and Republican lanes, but the simplest way to code the country is to label each state with its #1 quadrant:
As we zoom into the state level, we can further segment each county by its #1 quadrant:
Next, I need to expand my county-level typology nationwide, using a combination of general election and primary results.
Finally, I want to fine-tune my typology to the precinct-level, starting with Michigan.
This analysis is a work-in-progress. Message me @neilthanedar if you want to riff and refine on these ideas!
