They all appear yellow because they are mostly in the 80% range. If it was a bigger discrepancy, you would see a larger color different.

I'm going to have to side with Bryan on this one, I have to tilt my screen to see any sort of difference in the colors. Looking straight at it, they all appear yellow.

Bryan, im afraid you have green and red colorblindness. You should go check that because i clearly see greens and reds through the map.

This has a terrible map. The legend goes from red (highest) to dark green (lowest), but nothing on the map is any color but yellow. There are a couple of states that are a tad bit darker yellow, but that's it.
