The hotspot type of maps seem to readily capture my attention, maybe because I tend to look at weather maps a lot, and can easily and quickly see just how temperatures stack up around the county. Similarly, a political map likewise ordered allows my eyes and hopefully my brain to make some quick analysis of what's going on.

Yes, just like the race track, some "bettors" appeared at the last minute before the race, changing the odds a bit. But odds are just odds and not a guarantee of who is the ultimate winner of the race. Even a long shot has a chance to win over the "favorite."

Ha! Yes, the trends are clear here, @tinym!

Take that, jumbotron touchscreen fanatics.

Thanks for assembling this amazing array of data depictions, Robert! I really liked the "Votes by Hotspot," graphic, especially for areas where the counties are enormous but the population is tiny.

Ahh! Yes, it appears the pollsters mistakenly assumed the Trump supporters would respond to their polls. It appears the "silent majority" waited until election day to make their preference known.

I meant very bad predictors of this election.

'these' (the examples in my collection) are all from previous elections - are you sure they're all wrong? :)

These all turned out to be wrong.

@Robert

You're right of course, the shapes are nearly unrecognizable.

I've seen other projections, which try to keep the shapes the same; but the population densities are so large that any solution adds a lot of distortion.
