Map Color Palette Options
The color palette has been expanded and made easier to use in creating your forecast.
Tilt Rating: Some forecasters use 'tilt' as a rating between 'toss-up' and 'leans'. This option is now available on the interactive maps via the color palette described below.
A New Way to Use the Colors: There are now two ways to color states on the Senate, House and gubernatorial interactive maps. Use the 'Map Color Palette' area to the right of the counter to make selections and changes. You can make adjustments to the available palette at any time.
Note that removing an available color via the minus button will not immediately affect any races on the map using that color. However, once you rotate off an unavailable color, it will not appear again in the rotation unless added back via the plus button.

Content Display IssuesA few people have reported problems viewing certain 270toWin election maps and/or polls. If you have an Ad Blocker in place, please disable it. Separately, you may not be able to view our maps in the new IE10 browser due to some changes Microsoft has made regarding the display of Flash content. This issue will not be fixed prior to the election, so you may want to visit 270toWin using a different web browser. Sorry for any inconvenience.
