This cartogram from Electoral Vote Predictor isn't shades of purple, but it isn't flat out red and blue, either. Plus, it scales the states by their electoral votes.

I was thinking just the other day about how to make my Purple States map scale state size by population so that a number of sparsely-populated, Republican-leaning states don't make the country look redder than it is. Scaling by electoral votes is a close approximation. I wonder whether I could get a version of this that I could run through my OmniGraffle manipulations.
