2016 was the only one I could get to load for some reason but the thing I noticed was the blue starting in southern virginia and swooshing into Carolina etc mirrors the Black Belt of minority majority cities/towns.

When the elections go by county or district, Democrats have been getting CREAMED since 1968!

Or large swaths of empty dirt like the maps show.

Vote by population vs land mass.

You do know why we have an electoral college right? So that rural and urban states are equally represented. What I’m talking about is very similar. Rural counties versus urban counties. Most rural counties vote Republican while urban counties vote Democrat.

Just pointing out that the maps you posted are disingenuous at best.

Yeah, when you take away a few big cities like New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, the Republican ALWAYS wins the popular vote.

As I understand it, the electoral college over represents rural states.

Yeah, but how many? That’s quite a bit. I’ve mentioned only three cities. Actually I believe you could still count San Francisco and the Republican would still win the popular vote.

Doesn't matter how many. Apparently you're not familiar with the electoral college. Cities and counties are irrelevant. People and states elect a president.

yeah, i guess if you take out a crap ton of Americans then you can paint whatever picture you want.


it's like you think it's a thing that a ton of counties with hardly any population and big land masses are more important compared to a bunch of other land masses with huge populations.

Yes I am very familiar with the electoral college. I pointed out earlier that why we go by the electoral college and not the popular vote is so that urban states and rural states have an equal say. We don’t overlook rural states this way, and we still campaign in them. I am simply making a similar argument of urban counties versus rural counties. I am simply making a representation of America a slightly different way.

This is why liberals don’t understand why we have an electoral college. I already explained that a couple times above.
