Red and Blue

For those who are still dwelling in despair over your fellow countrymen, for those who have been looking at that dreadful map of where Trump won and how the country was awash in Trump mania, for those who have listened to Mark Shields about how the Democratic party has been shattered, reduced to a bicoastal party, shrunken into a series of gopher hills in the prairie, you can draw that conclusion when you look at the standard election results map of counties won by Trump v Clinton and it does look dire. 

Pretty depressing, right?
But remember, grasslands and mountains don't get to vote. People do. And when you look at where the people actually live, you get a different schematic.

Feel better now?
