South Dakota Has Turned A Deeper Shade Of Republican Red Over The Past 20 Years

IO9.com, one of my favorite sources of sci-fi and superhero geekery, posts this animated gif showing political polarization. In particular, the middle of the country seems to be turning a deeper shade of red. South Dakotans probably didn't need to see this gif to discern that fact.

Although red seems to be expanding geographically, one needs to remember that the major population centers are blue.

For South Dakota's Democrats, it seems to show a trend that will be difficult to overcome. Certainly,  the normal political combination of message and smart candidates not  seems as if it will not be enough.to overcome the past 20 years.
