U.S. Urban Population Is Up ... But What Does 'Urban' Really Mean? - CityLab

Compare the map on that page with "archipelago" posted here; pretty uncanny.

This is nonsense.. Seriously OH LOOK! A empty field voted for Trump! And a city voted for Clinton!

Folks, its a population density map effectively.

Far more relevant? How many people voted for a candidate, not how many empty fields.

You realize, of course, that the Census considers any town with over 2000 people as "urban", right?

No, you're not "spot on". As I said, you need to count again. Those areas do not contain 240 million people.

Prospect....genius. Islands lost in the vastness of oceans. Water, water, everywhere. And not a drop to drink.

Trump won corn fields and Clinton won economic centers. Good to know.
