GOP Karnaugh Map

The herd of candidates vying for the 2016 Republican nomination can make it tough to keep track of what distinguishes them. But fret not. Blonzonics has discovered a way to uniquely classify them using only four criteria!
  • Did they announce their run before June 2015?
  • Do they reside in state that was part of the Confederacy during the American Civil War? [1]
  • Were they born in a month without an R? [2]
  • Does the last letter of their surname precede M?
The chart below shows the classification, organized in a stylized Venn diagram known to digital circuit designers as a Karnaugh Map:
 

See how the chart makes thinking about the candidates so much easier?

Footnotes:
[1] Though Carly Fiorina ran in California for the U.S. senate, she currently resides in Virginia.
[2] Blonzonics is studying whether there is connection to the rule about eating shellfish.
