The Two Americas of 2016
By TIM WALLACE        NOV. 16, 2016, New York Times



For many Americans, it feels as if the 2016 election split the country in two.

To visualize this, we took the election results and created two new imaginary nations by slicing the country along the sharp divide between Republican and Democratic Americas.



Trump’s America



Geographically, Donald J. Trump won most of the land area of the United States. A country consisting of areas he won retains more than 80 percent of the nation’s counties.

While Trump country is vast, its edges have been eroded by coastal Democrats, and it is riddled with large inland lakes of Clinton voters who were generally concentrated in dense urban areas.



Clinton’s America



Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly won the cities, like Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City, but Mr. Trump won many of the suburbs, isolating the cities in a sea of Republican voters.

Mrs. Clinton’s island nation has large atolls and small island chains with liberal cores, like college towns, Native American reservations and areas with black and Hispanic majorities. While the land area is small, the residents here voted for Mrs. Clinton in large enough numbers to make her the winner of the overall popular vote.



Land Area
Clinton’s America
15%530,000 square miles

Trump’s America
85%3,000,000 square miles




Population
Clinton’s America
54%174 million

Trump’s America
46%148 million




Popular Vote
As of Friday, Nov. 18. Percentages are for Trump
and Clinton votes only and exclude other candidates.

For Clinton
50.5%62.1 million

For Trump
49.5%61.0 million




Note: The illustrations are based on an analysis of county-level voting data to determine where a dividing line between areas that voted Democratic and Republican would fall.
