I like this visual, too. I was considering some numerical thing, figuring out how many states I could add up to equal the Trump voters from California. But a picture can sometimes say that better.

I did not think it possible, but Trump did win Middle America, and the hearts of blue collar folks in that region. The election did hinge, however, on just a few key states, Florida and Winsconsin come to mind. The Democrats are hurting now after the stinging loss, and they should recognize that they should not alienate the Rust Belt vote (as I think Clinton did), but, should also redouble their efforts in the key states that Clinton lost, next go round. The reality is, Clinton would have won the election or come extremely close, had she won the States that Obama did in 2012. I am not sure the Trump victory is as much a result of the people listening to him, so much as the people not wanting to listen to Hillary (i.e., her undesirable factor weighing in). I give kudos to Trump though, he ran the campaign he wanted to run, won it fair and square, and now has the Captain's wheel. He is running the ship, let's see where he takes it. Hopefully, he does not run the ship aground.
