Results can be found at the link above...including entire break-down from county by county. I made my New York scenario if you wanted to check out the map from that just get ahold of me.

I had it from mine...but yours'll be a bit different if you use ALL of the counties. Originally, I had created a formula for electoral votes with all the counties. First, I picked one county and set it to 3 electoral votes. That'll be the reference population:

Current Population * 3 / Reference Population

If you use all the counties, you're going to have....60+ counties. Here're their populations by county, commonly the turnout in an off year election in New York is ~20-25%, closer to 14% in the City:

Abortion and other Conservative issues - Golisano was running as a more conservative candidate because Pataki was running a bit more moderately than most.

Taxes

Drug Laws

Campaign Finance Reform

The Death Penalty - Pataki reinstated it when he first got into office

Health Care - McCall wanted to increase State benefits, Pataki wanted to keep them the same, with minimal increase in benifets to poor/low income, Golisano wanted to cut spending on that all together.
