2000 Sectional and Regional Politics

This is a geographical listing of sections and regions that the United States has been divided into for various analytical and statistical purposes. These do NOT necessarily coincide with the current divisions used by the U.S. Census; however, they do have SOME basis in earlier Census divisions as well as various political analyses from the recent past as well as earlier. These are the sections and subsections which seem to have best fit the realities of American sectional and regional politics over time and are still somewhat borne out by today's political climate.

NORTHEAST Section [11 states & D.C., 122 electoral votes]

MIDDLE WEST Section [12 states, 129 electoral votes]

SOUTH Section [14 states, 168 electoral votes]
