Two presidential races selected from 1940–2000. One pre1970, other post 1980. Analysis of the spread of power through the nation for each election.
I don't understand this at all, can someone help me?

Ms. Sue
I think you need to look at which sections supported the elected president. Look at the change in political parties and who supported them.
