Map of the Day
Very simple map of the 2012 Presidential election by county - essentially, the darker the colour, the more voters there were in the county. Sort of like a population map, but just counting voters who came out.
There's very obvious conclusions to take from this: the GOP has big problems with winning big, urban counties with lots of voters. Look at just a regular county winner map, and the GOP red dominates - but they're all small counties. Its a shame that those rural counties, for all their worth, didn't get the candidate they wanted... but, you win where the votes are.
