Map of the Day: A New Fifty States

Here's a map that attempts to solve the problems posed by the electoral college.  In this rendering of the USA, the states' borders have been redrawn so that they all have equal population.  According the map's creators this would ends the over-representation of small states in presidential voting, more closley align political boundaries with economic reality (as many states are more centered on one or two metro areas) and end varying representation in the House (currently, the population of House districts ranges from 528,000 to 924,000).
