Red State vs. Blue State InfographicOct 19th, 2010
InfographicWorld.com created an interactive infographic detailing the relative strengths and weaknesses of each state. One thing that jumps out is that “Blue” states link New York and California pay significantly more in taxes than they get back in federal support, while “Red” states like Alaska get back significantly more than they pay. This data confirms a few stereotypes, including blue states being more educated (more high school and college graduates) and red states being more religious (higher church attendance).
