purple state  紫色州

Meaning
a US state where around half the people vote Democrat and around half the people vote Republican.(Cambridge)

在美国选举版图上,purple state (紫色州)是指“摇摆州”,政治用语。它指有些在选举前摇摆不定,有可能是蓝色(投民主党);有可能是红色,支持共和党。紫色州有时在选举地图上显示为灰色,而不是紫色。

每次选举,紫色州都会发生各不相同的情况。当选举真正发生时,他们有时摇摆成为蓝色(民主党)或红色(共和党)。但在决定之前,它们仍为紫色。

通常,在选举版图上显示为紫色的州包括俄亥俄州,佛罗里达州和内华达州。在许多情况下,北卡罗来纳州,爱荷华州或科罗拉多州等州有可能被认为是紫色。

Citation
Is purple America really disappearing? A recent analysis of how America’s 3,113 counties voted in 2016 suggest it may be, revealing deepening electoral majorities of people with similar political beliefs than past presidential elections.

This polarization seems to confirm the anecdotal experiences of many people, who report they are increasingly living among like-minded neighbors. Indeed, in the months since the November election, political viewpoints appear only to have solidified, further erasing the prospect of a "purple" middle ground between a "blue" left and a "red" right.
