Here’s Proof That The US Is Trump Country

  • Maps summarize the results of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.
  • Trump’s dominance across the country became so apparent.

The recent 2016 presidential election has revealed so much about Americans. For one, it showed that the United States is indeed a Donald Trump country.

Alex Egoshin of Vivid Maps used colored maps to illustrate the spread of Trump’s influence and popularity. To exemplify the extent of votes across the country, Egoshin made use of topographical features.

Who Owns The US?

Unlike typical maps, Egoshin’s does not show mountain ranges and key geographical areas commonly found on maps. He created a map based on total votes compared to losing Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.

“Maps are like campfires – everyone gathers around them, because they allow people to understand complex issues at a glance, and find agreement about how to help the land,” Egoshin wrote.

Basing on Egoshin’s representation, it appears that the entire United States is indeed Trump’s turf. It shows that most of the topographical features of the country is colored red, representing votes for Trump.

Trump Land

The author created the maps using a mapping technology in ArcGIS called the IDW (Inverse distance weighted). Trump’s votes resulted to Trump Land; his opponent got a Clinton Archipelago.

Egoshin also created three other maps that summarize the result of the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. The states highlighted in red means it voted for Trump, while the blue ones were for Clinton.

In the first map, Trump’s lead over Clinton seemed obvious, which is represented by the color red for 81-100 percent votes obtain for that territory. But in the succeeding map, Trump’s dominance on the previous presidential race became so apparent, almost the entire country turned red. Alaska favored Trump, while the State of Hawaii voted for Clinton.
