Bush v. Gore

BUSH v. GORE….This is weird. Via Unfogged, here’s a chart showing that the fatter you are the more likely you were to vote for Bush in 2000. What’s more, aside from a set of outliers in the mountain states (which is peculiar all by itself) the correlation looks pretty good for a set of social science data.

Yes, yes, I know there’s an underlying cause. Probably income, or socioeconomic level, or something. But still. Weird.
