On the Washington Times election page there is a "State Tracker" panel with links to each state's results:
Each icon has a motif comprising blue and red fields with white stars on the blue field. I am wondering what, if anything, is the significance of the number of white stars for each state?
In particular, why does Wyoming have no stars?
I thought it might be stylistic - use as many stars as fit nicely in the blue space - but Wyoming doesn't follow that principle (nor does Connecticut and Utah though they at least have some stars). Another possibility might be to differentiate the icons (Wyoming with three stars would look like Colorado with three stars) but that doesn't seem satisfactory either since either could have two stars and be unique, and there are others that look similar and have the same star count.
This is probably an extremely pointless and trivial question but my curiosity overwhelms me. (By the way, I am Australian, so please forgive me if there is some answer that would be obvious if I was a US citizen.)
