In comments to the recent post on what happened to the White Vote, TTG asked about the electoral college results map adjusted for actual population density. Its an excellent question, because what we have is that the portions of the non population adjusted map show a LOT of red compared to the blue, the reality is that a LOT more people live in the blue areas than the red.
For instance in this map from Mark Newman at U Michigan's Center for the Study of Complex Systems shows the red/blue state map by population density (this is NOT the electoral college map, that's below):
Below you can find several maps that adjust for population density and see what I mean. Links back to the original site below them.
