1. Many commentators today say only a few “Swing states” (states where voters are almost equally divided among Republicans and Democrats) are determining the election.
States with heavy majorities of Republicans or Democrats are less important due to the Electoral college versus the Popular Vote.
Write a two page essay on your evaluation of the statement “Only Swing States matter”, using the election data available in the Election data files provided.
Consider how many “swing states” there are, if these states change the party they vote for often.
Does your data compare with published new articles about this subject?
Your submission should include at least the following:
-A clear description of your approach to evaluating the statement
-Some statistics generated by a program you wrote using the election data
-A reference to news sources about this topic
2. Write a program that uses the file ElectoralVotes.csv and the file Election Data 2012 to calculate the number of electoral votes earned by Obama and Romney in the 2012 election.
Your program should build a lookup table with the state names, another table with the associated electoral votes for that state.
The output should show two numbers – the total electoral votes earned by each candidate.
And print each state’s name, the winner, and number of electoral votes won.
