The (Under) 100 Counties That Accounted for Half of Clinton’s Vote

As the states have tallied and certified, Dave Wasserman and his team at Cook Political have tracked the national popular vote, which Hillary Clinton won. It currently has her total tally at over 65.7 million. While she received votes in every corner of the country, she only won the electoral vote in twenty states and the District of Columbia, ultimately losing the election to Donald Trump. How could she have exceeded Trump in the popular vote? Because she absolutely dominated in the nation’s most populated counties. As most of these are heavily concentrated in Democratic states, she ran up the score in many areas with no influence on the election’s final outcome. Her vote was so geographically compacted, over half of it came from under a hundred counties, listed below.
