An electoral map is a map of the 50 states of the United States which shows: 1. the number of electoral votes each state has 2. an estimate of how each state is expected to vote for president. Except for Maine and Nebraska, in each state the winner of the popular vote gets all of that state's electoral votes. By estimating which candidate is expected to win the popular vote in each state, it is possible to make an educated guess as to how many electoral votes each candidate will get. From estimating the total each candidate will get it is possible to estimate who will receive the 270 electoral votes needed to be elected president and make an educated guess as to who will be elected president.
