Vox: This might be the best map of the 2016 election you ever see

2016 Election Map

XKCD has done it again, via Vox: “An elegant solution to a prevailing problem. Anybody trying to illustrate how Americans voted in the 2016 election — or any presidential election, for that matter — are confronted with the problem that while the Electoral College votes by state, very few people live in very big swaths of land in the rural parts of the country.

The map often ends up looking very red, even if America is actually almost evenly divided between red and blue.

…XKCD … has cracked this riddle better than maybe anyone before, accurately representing how different parts of the country voted as well as how many people actually live there.”
